Revue de presse :

In Ketchup Clouds Annabel Pitcher perfectly captures a teenage voice harbouring a guilty and devastating secret as Zoe writes letters to a death row prisoner and slowly reveals the sequence of events that led up to the terrible act she believes she has committed. The letters offer an honest, moving and at times humourous insight into Zoe's life, including her family, first love and friendships, ensuring this book will have wide appeal. (Vanessa Lewis, The Book Nook THE BOOKSELLER 2012-08-24)

Ketchup Clouds is smart, funny, moving, suspensful and psychologically astute. (Adi Bloom TES 2013-01-04)

Ketchup Clouds is risky, confident, compelling and ends... with hope for redemption and self-forgiveness. (Mal Peet The Guardian 2013-01-04)

Pitcher's award-winning first novel, My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece, had guilt at its core. This superb follow-up also explores guilt and responsibility but with such a pitch perfect tone that the innocence of adolescence, the violence of murder and an undercurrent of black humour sit happily side by side. This is a vivid and rewarding portrait of passion and betrayal, captured in authentic teenage tones. (Sally Morris Daily Mail 2013-01-15)

Blending powerful emotion and darkness with ironic humour, it is a gripping and moving story about secrets, lies and growing up. Sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes wistful, often funny and always compassionate, this is a beautifully-crafted and unexpected coming-of-age story that will win readers' hearts. ( Booktrust 2013-01-07)

A gripping, must-read book for 2013 ( Bella 2013-01-15)

Annabel Pitcher creates a moving and compassionate story, capturing Zoe's loss of innocence beautifully as well as her journey of heartache and desire. Ketchup Clouds is edgy and poised. With twists and turns, its hard to put down and makes the perfect follow up to Pitcher's sensational debut. ( Cosmopolitan 2013-01-09)

A wonderful, romantic and sad story told through a series of letters written by a fifteen-year-old girl to a man on death row. It's heart-stoppingly gorgeous and we'd recommend it to anyone. ( The Bookbag)

It's utterly refreshing to see a YA writer be so honest about everyday life and not look away when times are dark. I suppose the beauty of her work is in her honesty, but also in her humour. ( Dog Ear Discs)

Pitcher's tale of troubled family life is deftly done... A moving and ultimately highly compassionate tale. To be human is to err, after all. (Martin Chilton The Telegraph 2013-01-03)

a memorable and compelling novel to devour in one, weepy, sitting. (Laura Fraine Books for Keeps)

Clever, warm and poignant, this book is the perfect way to begin your new year's resolutions to fill those bookshelves! (Claire Frost Fabulous Mag)

...poignant, funny and utterly beguiling. The author's writing style is as appealing and offbeat as the book's title. ( CHOICE MAGAZINE)

Powerful and utterly original... (Natasha Harding THE SUN 2013-04-05)
