I was reading this Buzzfeed list yesterday about books that every Aussie kid read at school and while I’ve read some, two in particular stood out:
Where The Forest Meets The Sea
I loved the collage as a kid and would borrow the books from the library & run my hands over the pictures because I wanted to touch the images and feel the leaves (and so on).
I also love her book Window about the changing environment in housing & development. I mean, what a huge & important concept that she manages to make easily understood by children in no words.
I actually want to own both of these books, just because of their sheer awesomeness.
Tomorrow, When The War Began
Did anyone NOT read this in school? I think I read it in grade 9. I remember a rumour starting that the second book had a sex scene in it and you were one of the cool kids if you could get your hands on a copy of that book & be able to say you’ve read it. And if you knew which page number it was on – that was also VERY important.
I’m taking a guess at page 157…
What books do you remember reading at school?
What’s your guess of what page the sex scene is on? From memory – no cheating!
