It is with deep gratitude and thanks to Lisa Hill at ANZ LitLovers LitBlog that I give you this book, Whisky, Charlie, Foxtrot.
Over the summer holidays I was browsing book blogs & Australian book bloggers in particular.
I found & read Lisa's review for this book and knew straight away that I had to read it for myself.
I agree with Lisa, that the cover is not great, but the story inside is a wonderful treat from start to finish.
I believe this book is officially designated as Young Adult, but it could happily be read by anyone who enjoys a book about nuanced, complicated family relationships. Personal growth, perspective and memory play a large role in this story.
Smith deftly avoids smultzy scenes. Instead she delivers a heart-felt, authentic journey through the lives of twins, William & Charlie.
I enjoyed this book so much, I have been searching for Annabel's previous book A New Map of the Universe. However, sadly, it seems to be out of print.
