What real Australian girls say about Letty

‘I thought I was there in the story looking at what happened and when the book finished, I felt as if I’d been jolted back to reality!   Isabella, 10

‘This is an exciting book. It is filled with adventurous characters and an outrageously good story…I would love to read the next book in the series.’ Carlee, 11

 ‘At the beginning I almost cried!  If I was Letty then I would be so upset and frightened!  At the end of the story I felt happy for Letty…I think the book was very cleverly written to make me feel for the character and make me want to read on.’ Joanna, 10

'Beautifully written, adventure-filled fiction.' Kids Book Review
