Tiger Daughter by Rebecca Lim

'An unforgettable story of family, friendship and finding your voice. I adore this book.' - Nova Weetman.


Wen Zhou is determined to create a future for herself that is more satisfying than the life her parents expect her to lead. Equal parts heartbreaking and hopeful, Tiger Daughter is a wonderfully compelling and authentic Own Voices novel about growing up Asian in Australia.  


The Cousins by Karen M. McManus

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know one another, and they've never even met their grandmother. Rich and reclusive, she disinherited their parents before they were born. So when they each receive a letter inviting them to work at her island resort for the summer, they're surprised ... and curious.  


The Hatmakers by Tamzin Merchant

Cordelia comes from a long line of magical milliners, who weave alchemy and enchantment into every hat. When Cordelia's father Prospero and his ship, the Jolly Bonnet, are lost at sea during a mission to collect hat ingredients, Cordelia is determined to find him.
