Review from Australian Women's Weekly magazine September 2014 issue.

"A chillingly plausible tale of a masterfully manipulative fourteen-year-old single child… A tantalisingly page-turning novel noir.”


Review from The Hoopla.com 

"This is a tense psychological thriller making parents face off against each other. If you think your daughter is a gifted liar does it mean you love her any less? Can a parent love their child so much they lose all perspective? Rachael’s Gift cracks along at pace, the strong writing and high stakes tale makes it a terrific debut bound to start a few conversations."

Review from Readings.com

"Rachael’s Gift taps into some of the deepest fears and preoccupations of modern parenting: bullying, social media, sexual predators, promiscuity, drugs, fame, ambition and giftedness... Rachael remains sassy and scarily believable, balancing perilously between innocence and experience. Cameron sustains a sense of intrigue around the question of Rachael’s real gift, and just who is being manipulated by it, until the novel’s end."

Review by Caroline Baum, Booktopia

"A great premise sets up this debut novel: what happens when the parents of a gifted teenager realise that her main talent is telling lies? And not just little ones, but whoppers that destroy other people’s lives. The psychological hook of this debut novel is unsettlingly plausible."

Rachael's Gift is one of Caroline's September reads. Thanks Caroline!

Review by Shellyrae Cusbert, Book'd Out, 26 September, 2014

"The pacing is perfect. There is increasing tension as the situation in Sydney spirals out of control and as the relationship between Camille and Rachael begins to fracture in Paris. The conclusion is startling in its honesty.

Part domestic drama, part psychological suspense this is a compelling read and an impressive novel from debut Australian author, Alexandra Cameron."

Review by Lucy Nelson, The Age, 3 October, 2014

"Lying is an art form; there's no doubt about it. But is it a gift some are born with, or a skill they mimic and eventually perfect? Knotty concepts such as this one are offered for unravelling in Alexandra Cameron's central character Rachael, a slightly eerie adolescent."
