This novel may be relentlessly grim, but is nonetheless a page-turner. You’re never quite sure where the story’s going to go, but you’ll know it’ll be bad – and it is. This may not be the kind of book teenage girls will flock to, but critics and awards committees should definitely consider it. Would I have appreciated Drowning Instinct as much when I was a teenager? We’ll never know, because I’m twenty-five years old, and I loved this. There are still some questions, but we don’t necessarily need answers.

Jenna’s story will stick in your brain. For better or worse.
