Last Friday I was invited by everybody’s favourite book shop, The Book Lounge, to chat to a group of grade seven girls from Red River High School.
The group formed part of the Rock Girl grassroots program that invests in young girls from poor communities.

The girls were shy at first, but after the Q&A they really opened up and started bombarding me with questions and hugs and posing for photos.
Thanks to the generosity of the Book Lounge and the creative community, each girl was able to choose a book from the huge selection of children’s and YA fiction on offer. It was great fun browsing through titles with the girls and referring my favourites.
Many thanks to the Book Lounge for the awesome opportunity.
