Now Reading... Words In Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

And loving it so far! It's book to read if you love books. And young love. And family issues... And touches of humour. It's set largely in a second hand bookshop - what's not to like?

I'm trying to read as much new Australian YA as I can, because these are the ones from which the CBCA shortlist will be chosen.

And face it, I have yet to read a Cath Crowley book I didn't love. They're gentle and sweet and funny and she knows about teenagers - as a teacher/former teacher, she should!

My favourite so far has been Graffiti Moon, which I think should have won that year's CBCA Award, but didn't. Still - this may become my new favourite - stand by!
