New review of "Racing the Moon"

Michelle Morgan - Tuesday, August 02, 2016

There is a new review of Racing the Moon in the latest Historical Novels Review (Issue 77, Aug 2016).

The reviewer, Cindy Williams, writes:

"Racing the Moon is full of boyhood exploits that kids will enjoy. The short chapters and simple, direct language make it a quick and easy to read. However it also touches on the darker side of life, including bullying, domestic violence and sexual abuse. These subjects are handled with subtlety and could prompt some important discussion for children aged 13 plus."

In summary, Cindy states: "I would recommend it as a great book for teenagers studying Australian history."

You can read the full review on the Historical Novel Society's website.

Thank you Historical Novel Society and Cindy Williams.
