Happy Free Book Friday! First, congratulations to Naomi Michelson, who’s won #24 Change Is in the Air, Mallory and #11 Red, White & True Blue Mallory. Naomi, send your address to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get your books in the mail.
Today we’re giving away a copy of Timber Creek Station by Ali Lewis. Originally published in the UK as Everybody Jam and shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, this is a must-read international import.
Danny Dawson lives on a cattle station in the Australian outback. Usually the annual cattle muster excites Danny, but everything is different now. Because Danny’s beloved older brother died in an accident last year, and nobody will talk about it. Because his teenage sister is pregnant and won’t tell anyone who the father is. Because his mother can’t cope with any of it and has hired a wide-eyed English house girl to deal with the family.
Timber Creek Station is the story of a grieving family, entrenched racism, and the surprising ways one boy—who thought he’d be stuck in one terrible place forever—can take a leap forward.
