August 2011 New Titles


  • Felice Arena – Whippersnapper

A stand-alone novel for younger readers from Mr Specky Magee. Think Freaky Friday on a basketball court.

  • Michael Wagner – Ted Goes Wild

The first in a new series from the man behind The Undys. Full of adventure and heart and capped off with gorgeous illustrations from Tom Jellett.


  • Penni Russon – Only Ever Always

For fans of dystopian fantasy, Penni’s latest offering is “fascinating and absolutely memorable”.

  • Chrissie Perry (Keighery) – Whisper

Going by Keighery for her YA fiction, you would otherwise know her as one of the Go Girl authors. This is her second novel, following from her teen debut Outside InWhisper gives a unique perspective as the reader is invited into the inner thoughts of a deaf teenager.

2011 Forthcoming Titles

There’s a couple of big titles looming in the latter half of the year that we’re pretty excited about here in the office. Watch out for these hotly anticipated forthcoming titles.

  • Steven Amsterdam – What the Family Needed

Reviewed in next month’s Bookseller+Publisher with a star rating of 4.5 out of 5. Similar structure to Things We Didn’t See Coming – somewhat sequential, linked short stories which help the reader piece together the bigger picture. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until November for its release!

  • Alice Pung – Her Father’s Daughter

Alice’s first memoir focussed on the matriarchs of her family. In this next piece of the puzzle we are told her father’s story, one that takes place largely in Cambodia and documents the atrocities of Pol Pot’s killing fields. For more of a teaser, take a look at this review from last week’sAge.
