We welcome into the pantry a writer we have admired for some time. Justine Larbalestier is a writer, reader, eater, drinker and sports enthusiast, which I'm sure many of you will know if you are a regular visitor to her blog over here.
Justine's latest YA novel, How to Ditch Your Fairy has just been published to a raft of rave reviews in the US and we are dance-happy in the house because we will be publishing the Australian edition in March - WOOT! Welcome, Justine!
We even have a sneak preview of the cover of the Oz edition.
Prepare to be abuzz with yearnings for your own personal fairy. We are wishing we had a speed-reading-and-retaining fairy so we could devour in a flash all the books in the pile beside the bed AND remember them in crisp detail so as to discuss (with colleagues, authors, book club, friends) in witty, thoughtful and charming manner.
