SAVE THE DATE: AUSTRALIAN READING HOUR – 9 MARCH 2023

As Happy as Here

Three teenage girls from very different backgrounds find themselves sharing a hospital ward. When they witness a crime in the park below their window, they bond over trying to solve the crime and each one undergoes a profound change. A beautiful coming-of-age story about identity, expectation, class, justice, society, fairness, and, above all, kindness.’Fresh insights into friendship and family are spun through tangents into chance and randomness … and music and its power to trigger memory and give a rhythm and pace to life. Injured Evie, in particular, learns how to grow and walk away stronger.’ – Weekend Australian
