‘A Heart Bent Out Of Shape is as tender and insightful as it is gripping. First love and a mysterious death – and the fears and intensities of both – are woven so deftly into the pages that I read late into the night. But this is, also, a love story in a different sense: friendships are precious and intimate, Lausanne is lovingly laid out, and the sheer joy of being young and alive is shining out on every page. The novel speaks of life’s value and potential – and of Hall’s, as a writer. Its heart is not bent, but beating perfectly.’
