Product description

Review

This novel about courage, love and tolerance sings with McCaughrean's glorious, new-minted phrase-making. --The Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week

McCaughrean is one of the greatest living children's authors. --The Bookseller

Geraldine McCaughrean is an awe-inspiring writer with a miraculous talent for bringing to life past times and faraway lands. --The Sunday Telegraph

What could be classed as a sweeping epic, The Middle of Nowhere is essentially a love letter to the Outback richly layered, peppered with seamless similes and wonderfully evocative, McCaughrean s language is what all children s authors aspire to create, and with it she has created a truly beautiful book. --Gobblefunked

Geraldine McCaughrean is an awe-inspiring writer with a miraculous talent for bringing to life past times and faraway lands. --The Sunday Telegraph

[A] superbly constructed and beautifully written tale. --John Newman, Newham Bookshop

Geraldine McCaughrean is an awe-inspiring writer with a miraculous talent for bringing to life past times and faraway lands. --The Sunday Telegraph

Geraldine McCaughrean's The Middle of Nowhere was a real breath of fresh air - beautifully written and drawing you in to the time and environment with great skill. I loved the characters, too. Geraldine's very good at dialogue - the different voices of the aboriginal boy, the Punjabi camel driver, the young girl, the upright, uptight dad, the horrible army veteran, the snooty relatives in Adelaide - they all ring true. It's also a story with a very contemporary resonance. --Young Quills Historical Fiction Award

Geraldine McCaughrean is an awe-inspiring writer with a miraculous talent for bringing to life past times and faraway lands. --The Sunday Telegraph

About the Author

Geraldine McCaughrean has written over 130 books and has won almost every single award possible, including the Whitbread Children's Book Award (three times), Smarties, Carnegie and Blue Peter Awards.
