"A movingly-great read! A great story teller. After reading the first chapter I found myself laughing along with the main character's wonderfully silent sense of humour which comes through easily
and naturally. I loved her powerfully hungry take on life and the environment.
Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islander people need to be represented by more voices in fiction. I know children in similar situations who have hardly had a whisper of life, let alone
In this wonderfully drawn protagonist, the author's unique style caused this sardonic Murri to read the entire book in a sitting. I cheered for both the author and the resilient, eccentric character who will live long in both heart and memory."

I have known Patricia for over ten years and it does not surprise me that she has written a worldwide best seller. Her forte has always been english and psychology, much to my annoyance on occasions, but it is a fantastic combination when it comes to writing a book. Patricia’s insights into human psychology has always amazed me and this book is no exception when she takes the reader on a journey with a severely disabled child who is perceptive and learns to express herself with technology. We get a warning that non-indigenous Australian’s must not underestimate Indigenous knowledge or their love for “country”. It makes for haunting and compelling reading.
