This was a fascinating concept – a biracial woman who can’t be remembered by anybody (except her disabled sister), so she turns to stealing. But what let it down for me was the antagonist – an app called Perfection that gamifies life and keeps pushing its users down a set of behaviours to be perfect and banal beautiful white people. As critiques of social media go, it’s a little too blatant.

So all things considered, it’s not something which would make me want to read another Claire North book.
