Huge congrats to the wonderful Deborah Abela, whose junior fantasy novel
has been awarded
Honour Book in the KOALA Awards, 2015!
Published by Random House, for ages 8 - 13
Deb, who is naturally thrilled, says that New City and its predecessor, Grimsden, are her 'cranky' novels, inspired by her frustration with governments not taking enough care of the planet. Plus her concern for people who have been forced from their homes for reasons beyond their control.
Richly deserved - congrats again Deb!
