'Getting to read a little snippet of a tiny fraction of those stories as a judge for A Page From My Life turned out to be an honour I wasn't really prepared for.' - Emer McLysaght, author of the Aisling series.
'I love that this book exists and that so many people have been given a chance to share their stories, funny, sad, surprising, inspiring, always fascinating, with a large and appreciative audience, and that so many words that might otherwise have been left unspoken or unheard will live forever now between its covers, waiting to be discovered, over and over again.' - Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart

'I can honestly say that this was the best crop of [writing competition] submissions I have ever had the privilege of reading, and I look forward to browsing this volume with nothing on my mind but admiration. - Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl

'When each of these authors decided to send their stories out into the world - a page from their life - they found a way to stop for a moment, to look at their lives, and to listen to the voice inside that says, 'this thing that happened to you, it is important.' - Emilie Pine, author of Notes to Self
