It’s a wonderful thing when your book is selected to be read by children as part of the incredible Readers Cup.

I was even more thrilled when my historical novel, That Boy, Jack was one of the books chosen for the state finals in Queensland, held at the Brisbane Writers’ Festival in September, 2014.


Check out all the results here.

That Boy, Jack was read by 18 teams of 4 or 5 students, and, according to coordinator, Jenny Stubbs, she ‘talked to kids at one school and they really liked Jack.’

What a happy, healthy, clever bunch of Aussie kids!
