    4 5 stars Well, if you like twisty and twistier then this is your book Beth and Dom have grown apart from Flora and Lewis Brain and haven t seen them for 12 years On a whim, Beth decided to go to Newnham House, the last address she has for them She parks up, sees Flora drive up to the secure gates of the large house, she gets out of the car with two children who she calls Thomas and Emily What The Thomas and Emily Beth knew should now be 17 and 15, so what on earth is going on To describe Beth as dogged in her pursuit of the truth is somewhat of an understatement as it is like obsessive but find the truth she does This is a very puzzling mystery which Dom wishes she d drop but she finds she is unable to do so One of the things I like most about this book is the characters Although Beth drives you a bit mad with her relentless pursuit, she is very likeable Her relationship with Dom is great but the standout character for me is their 16 year old daughter Zan Suzannah who I just love She is so funny, perceptive, incredibly smart and also supportive of Beth s investigation Yes, of course she should have been studying for her GCSE exams but hey, she s a smart cookie Lewis is the character you love to hate, in fact I found my fists clenched at some of his antics The story is peppered with humour which I like very much but this ceases obviously, once the very dramatic conclusion unfolds Yes, it s probably implausible, yes it s somewhat convoluted, yes some of the characters wouldn t know truth if it socked them between the eyes but I actually don t mind very much because it is such an enjoyable read Overall, I admit that at times I feel like I d been down the rabbit hole with Alice but at the same time it s terrifically entertaining, twisty, a bit creepy, weird and strange psychological drama which I couldn t put down Many thanks to NetGalley and Hodder and Stoughton for the ARCExpected UK publication 23 1 20

    Haven t They Grown is one crazy story And I really enjoyed it I read this in a day whilst on holidays, struggling to put it down I just needed to know what was going to happen next and how it was all going to play out Every time you think you know what is the outcome will be it throws you another curve ball Keeps life interesting Yes the story is out there and at times a little unrealistic but that is why we read sometimes, for an escape from reality I have enjoyed quite a few Sophie Hannah books and I love the way she writes her characters Besides wanting to slap Beth at times, she was likeable The other characters of her children and husband were also big parts of the story Beth and Flora used to be best friends But it has been 12 years since They lost contact and moved away So when Beth s son has a football match near where Flora and Lewis moved to she can t help but go and check it out But when she sees her ex best friend in the driveway calling to her children she is confused 12 years ago Thomas and Emily were 5 and 3 Today they seems to still be the same ages How can this be Beth becomes obsessed with finding out what is going on, going to some outrageous lengths to seek the truth Her daughter gets in on the act but her husband Dom warns her to stop But she can t, Is Flora in trouble, or is something sinister going on Thanks to Hachette Books Australia for my advanced copy of this book to read All opinions are my own and are in no way biased

    I d yet to read a Sophie Hannah book, even after they d come highly recommended by fellow readers I was therefore very excited to be given the opportunity to read her latest novel Haven t They Grown also under the title Perfect Little Children All Beth has to do is drive her son to his Under 14s away match, watch him play, and bring him home Just because she knows her ex best friend Flora, lives near the football ground, that doesn t mean she has to drive past her house and try to catch a glimpse of her She hasn t seen Flora for twelve years She doesn t want to see her today, or ever again But she can t resist She parks outside the house and watches from across the road as Flora and her children Thomas and Emily step out of the car Except There s something terribly wrong Flora looks the same, only older As would be expected However, it s the children Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily were five and three years old Today, they look precisely as they did then They are no taller, no older Why haven t they grown I found the whole premise, once it got going, very far fetched and utterly unrealistic but it didn t stop me becoming fully invested into finding out exactly why the children hadn t seemed to age Told in the first person by Beth Leeson, she can t believe what she s seen and is determined to discover the truth at all costs She has an exceedingly supportive husband, a lot supportive than I imagine most husbands would be and two very typical teenage kids who made up the very strong family Zannah the oldest child though much older than her years mentally really got into being the detective and relished trying to solve the unexplainable mystery Although she could be quite annoying, she was a very well developed character and I pictured her quite clearly rolling her eyes at times and sighing in frustration I did feel the scene with the teacher and the racism an unnecessary filler but on the whole I thoroughly enjoyed the whole story no matter how impractical most of it was and I found myself happily engrossed It was very cleverly plotted, if a little complicated but written well, with excellently created characters and a denouement that kept me fascinated Now that I ve read my first Sophie Hannah book it certainly won t be my last and I d happily recommend Haven t They Grown , it s well worth a read, just keep in mind it s entertaining fiction not a passable real life scenario 4 stars

    Book Reviewed on www.whisperingstories.comHusband and wife Beth and Dom used to be best friends with couple Flora and Lewis Their children were roughly the same age, apart from Flora s youngest Georgina who was only a few months old when they all lost touch.Lewis came into some money and the family moved away to St Ives in Cornwall Twelve years had passed by and although Beth had tried to keep in contact nothing had come of it She had also tried to see their new home on Google Maps but they lived on a private road.An opportunity came for Beth when her son had a football tournament near to Flora and Lewis s house, so after dropping her son off Beth goes for a quick nosy around and it isn t long before she sees Flora arrive in her flash Range Rover However, nothing could have prepared her for the sight she was about to see next Thomas and Emily, Flora s children climb out of the car but they don t look any different They are still the same age as they were twelve years ago.Beth is astounded and confides in her husband and ear wigging daughter Zannah, but can they put all the pieces together and come up with a plausible reason why the children hadn t aged Haven t They Grown is a suspenseful novel that really plays with your mind Some of the explanations that I had tried to come up with were the same as what the family did, could Flora and Lewis s children have died and they had and called them by the same name Could there be a supernatural element to the book or even a scientific one given that both Flora and Lewis are Scientists in their own field The plot takes you in many directions and throws in a few curveballs too The suspense waiting to find out why these children were so young had me on the edge of my seat, though I wasn t prepared for the real reason or even for the reason that the families hadn t spoken to one another for twelve years.If you like books that make you think outside of the box and are mysterious then this is the book for you It is beyond realistic but it is a damn good read.

    3.5 rounded up to 4Beth was out doing an errand when she comes across an old friend she hasn t seen for twelve years Beth knew that Flora had two children before they stopped talking to each other The children that are with Flora are the same age now as when Beth last seen them Beth becomes obsessed in finding out the truth surrounding the Braids Beth seeks help from her family and her daughter, Zannah is one than happy to help out This story starts off slow but the pace soon picks up There is some good twists but it s also a it far fetched in places I also felt the ending was a little bit rushed I can t say too much the plotline as it would spoil it for potential readers I really liked Beth and her daughter Zannah They were likeable and believable Overall, this is a pretty decent read.I would like to thank NetGalley, Hodder Stoughton and the author Sophie Hannah for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Oh I ADORED this twistier than you could hope for, a complex involving plot, a seemingly impossible mystery, with each passing page you get and addicted, whilst scratching your head in bemusement until Sophie Hannah unravels it all for you and it all makes sense Clever clever Also one of my favourite teenage characters in Zannah a breath of fresh air.Full review to follow for the tour but definitely highly recommend.

    After a standalone and the Poirot novels it s nice to see Hannah going back to one of her impossible mysteries though, sadly, she doesn t bring back her Culver Valley cops She certainly hasn t lost her touch for wildly convoluted plots and actually delivers a denoument that is as twisted and cruel as we have hoped.That said, Beth can be an irritating narrator with her repetitive inner dialogue yes, we re keeping up with the story, thanks , her endless domestic minutiae ok, fine to tell us she s using a lavender face mask in the bath to indicate she needs to calm her anxiety but I really don t care that it comes in powder form and has to be mixed with water to form a paste argh, stop There are some credibility issues, especially around Zan turning detective with her mother when she should be revising for her GCSEs, but Hannah pulls it all together by the end I d have preferred a bit drip feed of discoveries to tighten the whole thing up and making it less of a rush to the finish, but Hannah has delivered another labyrinthine page turner.Many thanks to Hodder Stoughton for an ARC via NetGalley.

    The protagonist Beth, hasn t seen her ex best friend in quite a while, so out of curiosity she decides to drive by their house one day She catches a peek of her ex friend and children getting into their car and at first glance things look normal Beth does a hard double take though because the kids are the exact same age as they were when she saw them last, years earlier From here this book twists and turns, and messes with your mind until the very end Never boring and great characterizations will keep you invested and leave you satisfied.
