Black Cockatoo and the CBCA Notables

March 9, 2019

As an avid reader seeing one of the CBCA stickers gets me to stop and pick up books that I might not have given a chance. In our wildest dreams we would never imagine seeing one of those stickers on our novella!

We are super pumped that Black Cockatoo (Magabala 2018) has been included in the Book of the Year: Young Readers Notables for 2019.

The list is jam packed with some amazing books, some we have read… and even more to add to our overflowing ‘to-read-list’. We are especially excited to be appearing on any list with fellow ex-SWIRLer/remote teacher/author Clare Atkins and her amazing book Between Us. If you haven’t read it yet we reviewed it here: http://hakeahustler.com.au/deadly-reads-between-us/

Even if we do not progress further in this Award we are very honoured to have been noted. We will wait and see what happens come 26th of March when the shortlists are announced… and to celebrate whoever wins on August 16th.
