Small Spaces is a page turning young adult psychological thriller, an uncommon combination within an increasingly popular genre. The novel is a page turner and you will find yourself staying up late in order to find out the mystery of Sparrow.
Small Spaces will have you questioning everyone and everything, including the sanity of our protagonist Tash, as she explores how a childhood abduction of a neighbour continues to impact her years later. The novel is creepy and suspenseful playing on our fears of self-doubt, and the setting, especially the carnival, is unsettling and becomes a significant aspect of the character's development.
The novel’s central idea is one of self-belief and self-worth. Although the genre is YA fiction, adult lovers of psychological thrillers will love this too. It's the little sister to Megan Goldin's The Escape Room.
