Categorising books can be the kiss of death especially when it comes to so called young adult fiction. So many terrific books get ignored just because people get into a mind set of only reading in a certain category. So let me get it out there.
- Mal Peet’s books are generally categorised as young adult fiction.
- Don’t let the teens have all the fun – Mal Peet makes a very satisfying read for anyone older than about 14.
I’ve been holed up with Exposure over the last few days. Its football, its a twist on Othello, its all about the big man falling from grace. A great read, and an excellent follow up to Keeper and The Penalty. Tamar is a stand alone.
Mal Peet will be trackside in Sydney for the Writers Festival next week and I can’t wait to meet him. In the meantime, check out his Paul Faustino titles here.
