Lonely orphan Wonder Quinn lives in the attic of Direleafe Hall with only a gloomy crow for company. Every year she hopes to make a true friend and every year her heart breaks when she doesn't.

But when spirited new student, Mabel Chattersham, befriends her in class, Wonder's dreams seem to be coming true. As the girls grow closer, Wonder discovers her friend has a list of strange wishes- Throw a pie, leap in the sky, break someone's heart...

What is Mabel's big secret? Can Wonder protect her heart from being broken all over again?

The Heartsong of Wonder Quinn is a enchanting tale celebrating friendship, bravery and the importance of staying yourself.

Kate Gordon grew up in a very booky house, with two librarian parents, in a small town by the sea in Tasmania. After studying performing arts and realising she was a terrible actor, Kate decided to give in to genetics and study to be a librarian herself. She never stopped writing and, in 2009, with the encouragement of a very nice man called Leigh (who is also her husband), she applied for and won a Varuna fellowship, which led to all sorts of lovely writer things happening. Kate's first book, Three Things About Daisy Blue, was published in the Girlfriend series by Allen and Unwin in 2010. She has also written Thyla, Vulpi, Writing Clementine, and Twenty-five Memories of Viggo MacDuff. Her most recent publications are the young adult novel Girl Running, Boy Falling (A&U) and the younger reader series Juno Jones- Word Ninja (Yellow Brick Books).
