Review quote

"Young adult fiction that manages to deal with a sensitive issue yet doesn't thrust too much teenage anguish upon us . . . A story about change, agency and responsibility, with a pleasant mix of stylistic neatness and thematic uncertainty." -- Sydney Morning Herald "This novel is written in a manner that is both honest and touching, as it does not attempt to give a fairy-tale ending and is extremely realistic." -- Courier Mail "Wolfer paints both scenarios so convincingly that this book begs re-reading and discussion. For teenage boys and girls it should be compulsory reading." -- West Australian "Wolfer has given honest, non-judgemental pictures ofthe consequences of two different courses of action." -- Magpies

About Dianne Wolfer

Dianne Wolfer is the author of 15 books for teenagers and young readers. Light Horse Boy was a Children's Book Council of Australia Honour Book and won the 2014 Western Australian Premier's Book Award for Children's Books. Granny Grommet and Me, inspired by surfing grandmas, was also on the CBCA shortlist. Lighthouse Girl, winner of a West Australian Young Readers' Book Award, explores the story of Fay Howe, the Albany lighthouse keeper's daughter who signalled to soldiers in 1914. It inspired the hugely popular Royal de Luxe performance of The Giants at Perth Festival (2015).

Dianne wrote her latest book, The Shark Caller, as part of the PhD she is currently completing at UWA, but she has been dreaming about this story for ten years.
