Our June Book of the Month
Egshell Skull
by Bri Lee

Dean says; A brave, searing and honest biography that will make you cry. A look at Australia’s legal system from the inside. Lee was a judge’s associate for a year; watching legal cases against child abuse, rape and domestic violence and the system that trials these cases. What this experience brought out in Lee was insight into the fight on her hands when bringing her own case of child molestation into the courts. Readers watch the effect childhood violence has on victims, the anger the systems inadequacies bring fourth and the strength needed to fight the charges all the way. Lee’s strength in writing her biography is admirable and necessary. This is an important book for Australia and is a real eye opener to a system we (hopefully) don’t get to personally access all that often.

The Mystery of the Colour Thief
 by Ewa Jozefkowicz

Jan says; Izzy’s life has fallen to pieces since the car accident. Her Mum is in a coma, her best friend has dumped her and the colour thief is stealing the colours from her world. Izzy blames herself for the accident and whilst trying to be brave she meets her new neighbour, Toby, who is paralyzed from a skateboarding accident. They find a nest of cygnets and together make it their mission to look after Spike, the scrawny, odd looking one. A story about families, friendships and hope.
