Our new book selection adds a promising and prize laden young Australian author to our repertoire: Jasper Jones – by Craig Silvey (304 pages).

Summer, 1965. Late one night, thirteen-year-old Charlie Bucktin is startled by a knock on his window. jasper-jonesHis visitor is Jasper Jones. Rebellious, mixed-race and solitary, Jasper is intriguing. And he needs Charlie’s help. In the dead of night, the boys steal through town, and Charlie learns of Jasper’s horrible discovery. Burdened by a terrible secret and the weight of a town’s suspicion, Charlie feels his world closing in. After this summer nothing will ever be the same again.
