Just giving you all the heads up that if you happen to be in the Greater Newcastle/Hunter Area this week, you should pop into Macleans Bookseller’s (Independent Bookstore) this coming Wednesday (5th March) to celebrate the release of Wendy James new novel, The Lost Girls. Wendy will be in conversation with fellow writer Jaye Paul on the night and it is sure to be a night not to be missed.
I actually bumped into Wendy on Saturday at work (and almost told her about her own book launch! We had a good laugh about that) and she is looking forward to what is sure to be a fantastic night of laughs and bookish fun. Details are below.

From the bestselling author of The Mistake comes a hauntingly powerful story about families and secrets and the dark shadows cast by the past.
Curl Curl, Sydney 1978.
Angie’s a looker. Or she’s going to be. She’s only fourteen, but already, heads turn wherever she goes. Male heads mainly …
Jane worships her older cousin Angie. She spends her summer vying for Angie’s attention. Then Angie is murdered. Jane and her family are shattered. They withdraw into themselves, casting a veil of silence over Angie’s death.
Thirty years later, a journalist arrives with questions about the tragic event. Jane is relieved to finally talk about her adored cousin. And so is her family. But whose version of Angie’s story – whose version of Angie herself – is the real one! And can past wrongs ever be made right?
The shocking truth of Angie’s last days will force Jane to question everything she once believed. Because nothing – not the past or even the present is as she once imagined.
