What are you reading Monday

Today I am reading Sleeping Dogs by Sonya Hartnett

Sonya Hartnett would have to be one of the best Australian Authors for young adults. Her books are confronting, well written and thought provoking. I read Sleeping Dogs years ago, but have recently decided to embark on a retrospective of Hartnett's work, so expect to see a bit of her.

Sleeping Dogs is the story of the Willow family. A strange and dysfunctional family  who run a caravan park on their farm. They are secretive and close knit. Along comes Bow, an artist who stays at the caravan park and discovers the secret the family is hiding.


  1. Is Sonya Hartnett an Australian? I'll have to look her up on my library website. Look forward to reding your reviews.

  2. Sounds quite interesting. Have a wonderful week reading. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/01/what-are-you-reading-mondays-18-january.html
