Booked Out veteran, Felice Arena, has done it again and this time in a whole new genre…

As one of Australia’s most beloved children’s authors, Felice has enthralled young readers with scores of titles, including the Specky Magee and Farticus Maximus series, as well as the Boyz- RuleGirlz-Rule and the Sporty Kids books. Topping best seller lists and garnering a multitude of awards, Felice wows us again, taking on a new direction in his latest novel, The Boy and the Spy.

Set in Sicily during the World War II, The Boy and the Spy follows the journey of Antonio, an orphan ‘Rota’ boy whose chance meeting with a fallen American soldier will change not only his life forever, but potentially the future of Sicily.

The Boy and the Spy is an engaging work of historical fiction teeming with adventure and themes of adversity, trust, war and belonging.

Well done, Felice – we can’t wait to read it!
