As part of Persnickety Snark's Aussie Month, I will be spotlighting a whole heap of Aussie debut YA writers. The first is the lovely Amra Pajalic, who's first novel, The Good Daughter will be released today (May 4). Amra is a fresh new voice in the Aussie YA scene she describes TGD as "...cross between Melinda Marchetta’s Looking for Alibrandi and Randa Abdel-Fattah’s Does my Head Look Big in This?" If this doesn't sell you on the brilliance of this novel then read my review.
