Yay, a 5 Star Review!

5star-flat-webReviews are always exciting – more so when they come from complete strangers who have no preconception of you as the author, or of the book itself, or even your writing style. So I was rapt to receive a 5 star review from Jack Magnus at Readers’ Favorite, a book reviewing website!

It was even better that he ‘got’ the main character of Carly, a very prickly, defensive teenager who has a tendency to drive people away. And totally fantastic that he even grew to like her! I was worried that the book might be a little too ‘Aussie’ in some ways, and that people may not believe in the characters, but this was a great reaction to the book.

I guess that’s what writing and reading is about – that connection when you as the writer try to explain something in your head… and wow! the reader gets it, and maybe even walks away with a different way of seeing something. Job done 🙂

Thanks Jack!
