Product description


This then is more intelligent than many books for this audience - I would put it at anywhere from ten and up, so valuable an entertainment could it be for the adult reader. It's richer, deeper and a whole lot more surprising - the ultimate truths both startling in their severity yet fully understandable and in keeping. It is so much more than what it appears to be - yes, it is about the girl and the assumption that spies are next door, but there's so much more to it than that. There is a lot more to it than many books you will read this year. -- John Lloyd * The Book Bag * Dubosarsky's writing is simple and understated, but no less beautiful for that. A mesmerising read. * Inis Reading Guide * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Ursula Dubosarksy is a multi-award winning novelist and one of Australia's finest writers for children. She was born in Sydney in 1961. After studying several languages at university, she taught French to primary school children. She then travelled to Israel where she spent one of her most memorable years on a kibbutz. Since 1989, Ursula has published many award-winning books including "The White Guinea-Pig, The First Book of Samuel, High Hopes" and "Abyssinia." Her work is recognised overseas as well as in Australia: the "Cambridge Guide to Children's Books in English" describes her as 'one of the most original voices in Australian writing for young people'. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
