Product description

About the Author

Sofie Laguna originally studied to be a lawyer, but after deciding law was not for her, she trained as an actor. Sofie is now an author, actor and playwright. Her books for young people have been named Honour Books and Notable Books in the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards and have been shortlisted in the Queensland Premier's Awards. She has been published in the US and the UK and in translation in Europe and Asia. Sofie's first novel for adults, One Foot Wrong, was also published throughout Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Sofie has written the screenplay for the film of One Foot Wrong, scheduled for pre-production in 2014. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

An extraordinary achievement. Hester's voice is original and compelling...compels us to see our familiar world as new and intriguing - no small feat. -- Jo Case * Big Issue on One Foot Wrong * Laguna's child narrator both emphasises and conceals, through simple yet articulate images, the complicated extent of suffering and release. * Guardian on One Foot Wrong * A book that intrigues and affects every essence of your humanity... A dark and terrible tale told in lyrical, poetic language and stark imagery. * Australian Bookseller and Publisher * Jimmy is a tour de force of a character, brilliantly maintained... Laguna's great skill is in conveying the contradictory human depths in all her characters. * Adelaide Advertiser * A beautiful, sombre style, relieved by occasional happy-go-lucky moments and strangely surprising resilience... Laguna has vividly brought to life what it must be like to be a different child and the effect his condition can have on a family. * Sydney Morning Herald * Harrowing, beautifully written, insightful and absorbing... Unique, forceful and absolutely hypnotic... Fresh, honest writing. -- Emily Macguire * Canberra Times * Quite an achievement... It is quite a feat to write characters with such nuance... Laguna is an author proving the novel is a crucial document of the times. -- Louise Swinn * The Weekend Australian * A book that crosses the boundaries of adult and YA fiction. * Guardian * It is outrageous that someone as young, beautiful and - goddamit - as happy looking as Sofie Laguna has written this wee beauty of a novel... As a "domestic" novel, it could be cliched, but Laguna, through Jimmy's wonderful eyes, makes every sentence, every word, sing and soar. * Irish Times * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
