Someone asked us later, "Didn't you wonder why no one came across you sooner?"
Did I wonder?
When you see your parents zipped up in black body bags on the Jellicoe Road like they're some kind of garbage, don't you know?
Finally. I am finally, finally reading this one. Ever since I first joined Goodreads, I have seen this on my feed. This, and Marchetta's other novels. All with the general consensus of this is really fucking amazing and Melina Marchetta is a goddess.
Now, after all these months, I'm reading it. And they were right.
What are you reading this Tuesday?
P.S. As soon as I finish this one, my 100 Followers Giveaway will go up! This is exciting. This is very exciting. You should be excited.
