Sue Whiting lives and works in a sleepy coastal village near Sydney where she spends her days dreaming up adventures for her characters. Sue has written numerous books in a variety of genres, including bestseller The Firefighters and the award-winning A Swim in the Sea. Her Nature Storybook Platypus, illustrated by Mark Jackson, was a CBCA 2016 Notable Book. Her middle-grade bestseller Missing is a page-turning cracker of a novel.
The Book of Chance is a story with a big heart and an even bigger twist. For readers aged 11+. * Readings * An intriguing and poignant novel; worth a read * Sharon Greenaway Reviews * Exploring themes of honesty and love, the question of 'what is family' and forgiveness, this is a compelling read for tweens and teens. This is a 'coming of age' narrative like no other I have read and I recommend it highly for astute readers from around 12 years upwards. I fully expect to see this receiving the highest accolades from all the award committees. * Just So Stories * Highly recommended... a powerful book * ReadPlus * This incredible novel will tie you in knots from the first page. Engrossing and superbly crafted, the longing to quickly turn the pages and find out what has happened will keep you riveted. There's no way you can put it down till the end! * Kids Book Review *
