Detention was a privilege to read. It was confronting, powerful, emotional filled and an important story to tell. It reminded me that not all Australians live equally
Reading 47 degrees opened my eyes to the realities of what was faced on Black Saturday ten years ago. Justin D’Ath has captured his experiences and put it into a work of fiction for ages 10 years and over.
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.
