Aussie, Aussie, Aussie - YA! I have a really soft spot for Aussie YA and it's not a secret, at all. Whether it's been written by Aussie authors (ahem Markus Zusak and Margo Lanagan!) or just set in contemporary Australia, something about the literature is a real treat to read.
Karen Foxlee - who is in fact, Aussie - is visiting Random Buzzers this week and her book, The Midnight Dress, is set in a sleepy beach town Leonora, Australia! I thought about it and rounded up some of my fav Aussie YA books! Click on the book covers to add them to your shelves, and if you have any suggestions on what I should read next, leave them in the comments!
My list of Contemporary Aussie YA:
Saving Francesca by Meilna Marchetta
