The Scandalous Life of Sasha Torte
(Harper Collins 2017)
NETGALLEY: posted October 9 2017. Read full review by Snow Queen SVT (Netgalley Book Review) on BOOKS page
‘I absolutely love Sasha Torte. I am as in love with her as I am in love with dark chocolate (that’s a lot). She is an amazing character. Even when she is on drugs she is adorable. Sasha is lovable through all her bipolar episodes. She is a very strong, determinate and … through everything that happens to her, she is very content with everything that happens to her and around her.‘
THE AUSTRALIAN: Weekend Australian Review April 1 2017.
‘Melbourne author Lesley Truffle gives the young female protagonists extraordinary adventures and social mobility. Her humour is droll, her tone arch, her satire pervasive … These narratives toy with and partially reject the courtship plot conventionally offered to female readers. They also ask whether the modern woman must behave and think like a man.’
