New ‘Books+Publishing Junior’ reviews out now
Books+Publishing’s latest Junior newsletter contains six reviews of books publishing in December 2017 to February 2018.
Set in ‘prestigious and mysterious’ school for exceptional young scientists, Quark’s Academy is ‘an engaging and entertaining debut for readers aged eight and up with an interest in STEM—or those who just love a well-paced adventure story with fantastical elements’, writes reviewer Lian Hingee. Read an interview with the author here.
Between Us tells the story of ‘two young people in Darwin who make a connection, though one of them lives in Wickham Point Detention Centre’. Atkins develops her characters ‘in nuanced ways, each one providing a facet to the complex, multi-generational stories of immigration and belonging in Australia,’ writes reviewer Hannah Cartmel.
Also reviewed are:
Me Too (Erika Geraerts & Charls Laubscher, illus by Gatsby, Walker Books, February) and A Tangled Tale of Tagliatelle (Yves Stening, illus by Nigel Buchanan, PublishCreative Books, December)
Initiate: Palace of Fires Book One (Bill Bennett, Penguin, February) and Unearthed (Amie Kaufman & Megan Spooner, A&U, December).
