‘Whisper’ tops Australian YA bestsellers chart

Bestselling YA fantasy author Lynette Noni occupies the top five spots in the Australian YA bestsellers chart for July. At the top of the chart is Whisper, the first book in a new series about ‘Jane Doe’, who has been held in a secret facility for over two and a half years, where she is regularly experimented on. The other four titles are the first four books in Noni’s ‘Medoran Chronicles’ series.

One of the new entrants in the chart is Anna Snoekstra’s debut YA thriller Mercy Point. Snoekstra is the author of several popular adult thrillers.
