Overview

Kate and Ruby live in the High Country in Victoria. They're both daring, quick-thinking and prepared to break the rules, and they're both brilliant horse riders—they'd probably be great friends. But they live in different times, more than 140 years apart. While galloping through the mountains, Kate rides headlong into a thrilling experience that transports her from 1878 to the future, where she meets Ruby. Kate and Ruby return to 1878, where Kate is secretly taking supplies to her brother Ned and the rest of the Kelly Gang, who are in hiding from the police. Together the girls work to confuse the police and keep the gang from being found and arrested. But the looming disaster makes things less clear-cut for Ruby. They're about the have the ride of their lives! Outlaw Girls is an exciting, fast-paced time-slip novel, narrated by both Ruby and Kate, about family, friendship, loyalty and betrayal, the complexity of right and wrong, and working out what matters most.

A great history book [with] several underlying themes which deal with things such as honesty, making the right choice (not the easy choice), and choosing friends wisely. Ruby has many flaws and we see her struggle with growing up. There could be much discussion in a classroom setting around these themes...Their characters are well rounded and the imagery makes it easy to imagine life in the high country of Victoria in the 1880s...Young people who love horses will particularly enjoy Outlaw Girls.’ * GLAM Adelaide * ‘A compelling read where modern-day teenage angst and privilege meets poverty and injustice in colonial Australia…Ingeniously [tells] the story of the Kelly women and how they supported their brothers and kept the family together.’ * ReadPlus * ‘The thing that stood out to me the most was that the women and girls were at the forefront, having their voices heard…That is what makes historical fiction like this so powerful—allowing people who have previously been silenced to have a voice…Emily and Nova’s books bring history to life.’ * Book Muse * ‘This is an awesome story for young readers interested in historical fiction, or anyone who loves a bit of action and intrigue!’ * Better Read Than Dead, March Kids Book of the Month * ‘Horses and history combine in this exciting middle‑grade novel that will have children who love stories about the bush and bushrangers completely hooked.’ * Readings *


'Whip-smart.' * Australian Women's Weekly on Elsewhere Girls * '...Full of incisive charm and wit, and the pair's existing middle-grade fans will happily devour this intimate, perceptive look at equality, class, women's rights and what matters most.' * Books+Publishing on Elsewhere Girls * 'Nothing short of superb.' * Aurealis on Elsewhere Girls * 'A charming, eye-opening exploration of gender restrictions and self-determination.' * Kirkus Reviews (US) on Elsewhere Girls *
