‘A smart, funny novel… With its twisting plot and sharp observations, this is a wonderful debut from a talented new writer.’ Sainsbury’s Magazine

‘Tanya Stephens is, to put it simply, a bitch. A graphic designer at a greetings card company, she spends most of her time reliving a past relationship, alienating everyone she knows and reading books. Stumbling into a second-hand bookshop she comes across The Counterfeit Confetti – a novel that literally describes her life. Craig’s debut novel is an intriguing read. It is a book about books and their effect on people. Reading becomes not just a form of escapism, but a place where an individual can have complete control over their life.There is something engaging about Tanya’s realness. She is the antithesis of Bridget Jones – irrational, moody and happy to be alone. Craig’s prose is as direct as Tanya’s attitude and makes Cover to Cover a well structured exploration of emotional relationships.’ The Times
