Penguin Books Australia isn’t exactly someone I expected to become friends with whilst social networking on Facebook, but I’m glad I did. Today thanks to this “friendship” I followed a link to this tantilising taste of the new Melina Marchetta book called The Piper’s Son. Her previous titles include the best selling Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca as well as one of my favourite young adult titles On the Jellicoe Road which made it onto our Top Ten Books for Teen Girls list. This prologue has a lot of potential and unusually for Marchetta, the protagonist is male, a university aged boy named Tom. Out next month, I am really looking forward to this one. Paperback, $24.95.
