    "Going higher with Alison" While I don't go to Raves, I, like Alison would like to be a pilot, and so I quite enjoyed this story. I liked the complexity of her life - showing her very real struggles and frustrations of being a caregiver to her mum. I have encouraged my friends to read this book also.

    "Going Higher with Alison by Tammee Dee" from Ruth Fainlight: The main character in Tamee Dee`s novel, a totally believable fifteen year old girl, made me want to keep reading, and learn more about every aspect of her, her mother`s and her friends and neighbors lives in present day London. As well as being a very moving story, the book is fresh and convincing, and I rate it highly. Four stars, T. Dee!!

    "Going higher with Alison by Tammee Dee " It is refreshing to find a work, aimed at young people and those who care about them, which is neither patronising nor simplistic. This book is a serious must for anyone who is concerned to understand the generations of today, what makes them tick, and how they can interconnect. Read it! (Ian Flintoff)

    "Going Higher" Tammy Dee takes us deep into the inner and outer worlds of an adolescent girl in this coming of age story. The action is fast paced and never hits a false note. Here is a young girl skirting on the periphery of danger in contemporary London, determined to achieve her dreams despite all obstacles. And we know she will. An eye opener for adults and teens alike. I look forward to reading more by Tammee Dee. Kirsten Ebsen

    "Going Higher with Alison by Tammee Dee" Brilliant characterisation, contrasting the exuberant 15year old Alison with her MS-inflicted mother. The dialogue is masterful, convincing and utterly contemporary, the story-line is poignant. I haven't come across any other work by Tammee Dee, but hope to do so, both on my own account (63) and on behalf of much younger readers. It's a novel which could speak to any age, and deserves to be read. Florence Best
