This book is gripping, confronting, overwhelming, engaging and perfect for teens and young adults.
The main reason why I am looking forward to attending this festival, is that it brings people together from across Australia who have a love for the creative arts, to celebrate books, writing, reading, poetry, illustrations and all of their creators.
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.
