Winner of the 2009 Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in Young Adult literature. A highly anticipated follow-up from the bestselling author of Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca , both highly acclaimed productions available from Bolinda Audio. With the same strengths of wonderful characterisation, a strong story and sensitive exploration of family relationships, On the Jellicoe Road will be another favourite among teenagers and adults alike. Taylor Markham is now a senior at the Jellicoe School, and has been made leader of the boarders. She is responsible for keeping the upper hand in the territory wars with the townies, and the cadets who camp on the edge of the school's property over summer. She has to keep her students safe and the territories enforced and to deal with Jonah Griggs - the leader of the cadets and someone she'd rather forget. But what she needs to do, more than anything, is unravel the mystery of her past and find her mother - who abandoned her on the Jellicoe Road six years before. The only connection to her past, Hannah, the woman who found her, has now disappeared, too, and he only clue Taylor has about Hannah and her mother's past is a partially written manuscript about a group of five kids from the Jellicoe School, twenty years ago. This roller coaster ride of a novel grabs you from the first sentence and doesnt let go. You may not be sure where the ride will take you, but every detailfrom the complexities of the dual narrative to the pangs of first loveis pitch perfect, -Printz Award Committee Chair Mary Arnold.
