Crossing shortlisted for NSW Premier’s Literary Awards

I’m thrilled that Crossing has been shortlisted for the Patricia Wrightson Prize for Children’s Literature in the 2015 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards. It’s in good company with four very fine books – see the full shortlist here.

The judges have described Crossing as ‘poignant’ and ‘compelling’ and call it a ‘mesmerising story [that] raises many questions about families and values, rules and ethics, and, especially, about trust and freedom.’

Good luck to everyone on the shortlist!
