I reviewed Sea Hearts (Brides of Rollrock Island in the northern hemisphere) here.
Young adult book award
- Night Beach (Kirsty Eagar, Penguin)
- The Ink Bridge (Neil Grant, A&U)
- Three Summers (Judith Clarke, A&U)
- Sea Hearts (Margo Lanagan, A&U)
- All I Ever Wanted (Vikki Wakefield, Text)
It’s good to see Margo getting shortlisted for a prize and I think the book is worth it.
Sea Hearts is nominated in the young adult section. I tend to think Margo’s work has a very wide appeal and if you think that because it’s YA it lacks depth or substance, then you are missing out.
Read the review.
Buy it or borrow it from the library.
Help support great Australian Speculative Fiction.
Oh and Bravo Queenland for maintaining the prestige of the State Awards without the help of that vandal Campbell Newman.
