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.
