Some love for The Girl Who Chased Otters

The Girl Who Chased Otters is a sensitive tale of friendship, love and acceptance set in the southern suburbs of Cape Town. A keen observer of human behaviour, Nathan has never cared about fitting in, but when Olivia asks for his help becoming popular, he can’t refuse.

The Girl Who Chased Otters has been out for a few months, so I thought I’d do a quick round up of some of the love its been getting

Description: Kendall Mullins hates high school, almost as much as he hates it at home, but that all changes when Craig Baumgarten joins his class. Craig makes life at Percy Fitzpatrick High almost bearable, until the bullies set their sights on the new best friends and Craig hatches a plan to fight back with devastating consequences. As Kendall is drawn in deeper he finds himself in a situation he can’t escape and its up to his brother Justin to protect him. The Mullins brothers flee the suburbs as they attempt to outrun the law and the wrath of their father, but the streets of Cape Town are rough, and they have to come up with a new plan to survive. Following the success of The Goblet Club, S.A. Partridge has penned a second novel for youth, this time focusing on the relationship between two brothers. With sequential time-line, short chapters, contemporary language and dialogue, action-filled Fuse engages as an adventure story and is an accessible read for young teens. - Joanne Hichens, Cape Argus, November 2009 Uncompromising and gritty, Fuse isn’t decorated with moralising and glitter. As with The Goblet Club, the protagonists possess dubious motivations and are driven to deal with the unintended consequences of their actions. The novel should appeal to a middle-grade readership of 12 to15, and older, delivering a dystopian view of contemporary South African youth culture that is a welcome change from saccharine youth literature. - Pretoria News

“I tumble over and over, till the force of the deluge carries me away, out the door and into the passage. Photos of my family tumble from the wall and are swallowed by the sea. Her mouth opens and closes as she calls my name, but I'm already out of reach.”
S.A. Partridge, Sharp Edges

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

“I searched for my own heart
and long after I had lost my way
in the days trailing past with their foliage
in the aloof sky blue with distance
I thought I'd find my heart
where I'd kept your eyes two brown butterflies
and I saw the swallows swoop
and shadows starlings”
Ingrid Jonker

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

“Everything's better with zombies - NOT”
Lily Herne, Deadlands
