What to expect

I was dead for 13 minutes.

I don’t remember how I ended up in the icy water but I do know this – it wasn’t an accident and I wasn’t suicidal.

They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but when you’re a teenage girl, it’s hard to tell them apart. My friends love me, I’m sure of it. But that doesn’t mean they didn’t try to kill me. Does it?

13 MINUTES by Sarah Pinborough is a gripping psychological thriller about people, fears, manuiplation and the power of the truth. A stunning read, it questions our relationships – and what we really know about the people closest to us . . .

Critics Review

  • the most exciting premise of the year…surely belongs to Sarah Pinborough’s 13 Minutes

    The Express
  • An unsettling psychological thriller, the book plunges you into the frankly scary world of teenage girls

    Fabulous, Sun on Sunday
  • A must-read for fans of Megan Abbott, and fans of TV shows like Broadchurch. Very highly recommended, this is an addictive, must-read. Excellent. I can’t wait for Pinborough’s next novel.

    Civilian Reader
  • a highly dramatic and convincing thriller

    The Book Bag
  • 13 Minutes is another fantastic demonstration of Sarah Pinborough’s gifts for telling an enthralling tale. 9/10

    Sci-Fi Bulletin
  • The ending was typically haunting and overall this was, well, just damn terrific. One of my favourites of the year
