Clare Atkins, thank you for writing this book and for giving me insight into a world in which I had previously little knowledge about. It is raw, compelling and challenging and for that I am grateful.
Shout Out to the Girls is my definite pick of the month for a must have book, especially for Australian children and teens. With all the royalties going to The Smith Family charity you not only get to read the book but help those in need.
Congratulations to the various Penguin Random House women that put this together, I thank you for opening my mind to possibilities.
Congratulations to all those that have made it to the notables list , I am super proud of the quality of Australian literature, the children of Australia are so blessed to have such good quality books at their fingertips, and for those children that don’t let’s make it possible.
My lovely teenage friend Elizabeth reviewed The Whiz Mob for me. Elizabeth loves to read and although this one was different for her, she had lots of positive things to say about it.
When one takes a week off to watch tennis they also take the time to read a novel about tennis of course. Well The Harper Effect isn’t just about tennis, it explores family dynamics, friendship, dreams, ambition, determination and love.
Smile is exactly what I did when I finished reading this book, because I knew that this was truly an accessible title and I found the story to be an insight into Mona Lisa and the possibilities of her life.
