Tracks of the Missing (Magabala 2021) is a YA suspense thriller based in the outback. Deklan Archer, the main character is 15. So this book is probably aimed at 14-16 year olds who enjoy reading scary stories or watching scary movies.
But it could be for you too!
Do you like being on the edge of your seat, suspense killing you while you wait to see the twist? Do you like thrillers where you never know which direction the ‘bad guy’ will come from? Do you like books where you aren’t sure if the bad guy is actually even a bad guy at all or just a good guy seen through the wrong lens? Loved Goosebumps as a kid? You’ll probably like this book as a teen.
We also hope that Year 10-12 teachers might consider this book for text studies in senior years- WACE, HSC, VCE and all those. Any movie directors reading the blog? Wink wink.
When we released Black Cockatoo it only had a print run of 500 books so we literally thought a few people from around the Kimberly- plus our families- might read it. We could never have expected the love that it received nation-wide. So it is with nervous anticipation that we put this book out into the world. We wonder who will read it?
