We asked Kristy from one of our festival bookshops, New Edition Bookshop about their Book of the Week.
The book is called Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds by Jeremy Lachlan, published by Hardie Grant.
Its synopsis reads:
“Step inside. Don’t look back. Forward is the only way. His Dark Materials meets Mad Max in this unforgettable blockbuster adventure about the world between worlds.
When a fierce quake strikes the remote island of Bluehaven, and her father disappears, Jane Doe is thrown headfirst into an epic quest to bring him home.
But this ain’t no ordinary rescue mission. Her father is lost in a place between worlds; a dangerous labyrinth of shifting rooms, infernal booby traps and secret gateways. And Jane has to find him fast, because someone else is searching for him, too. A man who knows her father’s secrets. A man who has an army.
With a pyromaniac named Violet and the enigmatic Hickory by her side, Jane is about to discover that this adventure is even bigger on the inside than it looks...
This is the blockbuster adventure the worlds have been waiting for.”
Kristy says, “My son and I are reading it and it’s great fun! Every night he begs me to keep reading. We’re loving it. Very funny and exciting. Jane is brave and feisty, and Violet, her young sidekick, is hilarious.”
Jeremy will be in store in early August to sign copies.
