Congratulations to Lisa Fuller, whose GHOST BIRD (University of Queensland Press) has won the Readings Young Adult Book Prize. Started in 2016, this prize recognizes outstanding Australian YA authors. Read more here.
Bec Kavanagh, one of the four judges, commented that ‘’Fuller’s debut probes the deep tears in Australian culture, in its peoples and lands. In the forbidden depths of the mountain lies something powerful and terrifying, something that – when disrespected – will come out of the darkness to eat you alive.’’
A spine-chilling and profound thriller, GHOST BIRD tells the story of Stacey, a teenager whose twin sister has disappeared but who is convinced — based on the strange dreams that follow the incident — that her sister is still alive.
