The Summer of Kicks by Dave Hackett
Rate this book
Clear rating
I found Summer of Kicks reminiscent of King Dork by Frank Portman and Don't Call Me Ishmael by Michael Gerard Bauer. The narration is quick-paced, loaded with jokes and one-liners, and Starrphyre is an endearingly dorky protagonist (who at times beha...more

Bleakboy and Hunter Stand Out in the Rain by Steven Herrick

I think Steven Herrick writes with a great deal of insight and subtlety, so I was really looking forward to reading Bleakboy and Hunter Stand Out in the Rain. I strongly recommend both Cold Skin and The Simple Gift (the only other Herrick novels I've...more

I would like to preface this review by saying that I ordinarily actively avoid books-about-sports because I don't really understand sports. The only sport I follow is AFL because my family would not tolerate it if I paid no attention whatsoever to wh...more

by Claire Zorn (Goodreads Author)

I love apocalyptic stories set in familiar locations, and the fact that The Sky So Heavy is set in Australia really added to the realism for me, though it explored something entirely foreign (thankfully). Though I'm not familiar with the Blue Mountai...more

Replica

Rate this book

An awesome possible-near-future sci-fi novel with a fantastic premise and lots of killer twists. It's very, very difficult to talk about Replica without accidentally revealing any of these twists (and I hate to be a plot spoiler, I do) but I will say...more

“I hope you feel better about yourself. I hope you feel alive. I hope that good things happen to you, and I hope that when the inevitable bad things happen you can handle them and learn a lesson and move on. I hope you know you're not alone and I hope you spend plenty of time with your family and/or friends and I hope you write more and get a seven-figure book deal. I hope next year no more celebrities die and I hope you get an iPhone if you want one. Or maybe a pony. I hope someone writes a song for you on Valentines Day that's a bit like Hey There Delilah, and I hope they have a good singing voice, or at least one better than mine. I hope that you accept yourself the way you are, and figure out that losing 20 pounds isn't going to magically make you love yourself. I hope you read a lot. I hope you don't have to almost die to figure out how valuable life is. I hope you find the perfect nail polish/digital camera/home/life partner. I hope you stop being jealous of others. I hope you feel good, about yourself and the people around you and the world. I hope you eat heaps of salt and vinegar chips because they're the best kind. I hope you accomplish all your hopes & dreams & aspirations and are blissfully happy & get married to Edward Cullen/George Clooney/Megan Fox/Angelina Jolie (delete whichever are inappropriate) & ride a pretty white horse into the sunset & I hope it's all sweet and wonderful because you deserve it because you did well this year in the face of sparkly vampires/great evil/low self-esteem.”

Thanks for adding me! I wish my books were available there! If you're one for buying books online, my publisher has free international shipping - for both All This Could End http://textpublishing.com.au/books-an... & Girl Saves Boy http://textpublishing.com.au/books-an... (though I personally prefer buying books from independent booksellers, there are tons of US books not available here, so Amazon seems to get a lot of my money!)

Brooke Hey Steph!

Just swinging past to let you know I picked up Girl Saves Boy from Borders today, I'm so excited to read it! Love the cover. My mum read the summary on the back and now she wants to steal it. I told her to go buy her own copy, help an Aussie author out :oP hope all is going well post-release!

Brooke :o) x


Em (Love YA Lit) Congratulations on your new release!


Cass -  Words on Paper Thanks so much for friend requesting me! Hehe your profile pic is so pretty. :) You look so mature for 16, which I mean in the best possible way. Best of luck with the book...and I should get off to sleep now because it is past midnight. *yawn*
Just to let you know, I'm not entering your contest, because I have the intention of buying a copy, myself!

I actually have practically no information about my book online at the moment, and I've been meaning to put up a blurb for AGES.

I'm going to be putting up a blurb probably during March on my blog. I've also revealed little snippets of info about the book in recent interviews, which are listed here: http://heyteenager.blogspot.com/p/abo...

So I will let you know as soon as I figure out a decent blurb (I need to talk to my publishers about it...)! Thanks so much for the support :)

Brooke Hey Steph,

Probably a stupid question, but is there any information about your debut novel anywhere? I had a look on your blog and saw the article picture, but not what it was about (please forgive me if there was something there, I'm extremely sleep deprived today :oP), cos I'd really love to check out what it's about! I've got a lot of friends who read and I'd love to spread the word about a fellow Aussie (and a YA Author at that!) who deserves all the word of mouth she can get.

Brooke :o)


Robert Thanks so much for having me, Steph! Warmest regards to you!
