Sydney Morning Herald YA round up

View this post on Instagram #loveOzYA peeps – if you haven't already seen it, @frantatkinson has done a great round up of the year ahead in this weekend's Spectrum and Age.

Summer Skin playlist

It’ll give you nearly 3 hours of auditory pleazzzure. But – plot twist! – it’s not 100% correct. The real playlist is the chapter list.

This is what White Horses has to say about this issue: [themify_quote] We’re stoked to present this very special issue of White Horses, completely dedicated to, and created by, female surfers. We believe this is the best publication about women’s surfing ever put together. [/themify_quote] I agree. And not just because I’m in it. What I love is that it features women and

Can’t process what happened to George Floyd. But I can understand the anger and the helplessness when things seem to just repeat and not change. And I took so much from Christian Cooper’s dignity in response to what…

During the lockdown our local library took to delivering books in person. They arrived in cool bags that are now going to be my shopping bags (unless they want them back).⁣
