Better Reading Book Club: ‘Ginny Moon’ by Benjamin Ludwig

June 14, 2017

We’re excited to announce our next Book Club will be streamed live on Facebook at 8pm (AEST) Wednesday, 5 July 2017. We will discuss Benjamin Ludwig’s Ginny Moon. You can read our review here.

9781489220707_0517_GinnyMoon_CVRGinny Moon is a compulsively readable and touching novel about being an outsider trying to find a place to belong and making sense of a world that just doesn’t seem to add up.

While Ginny is pretty much your average teenager – she plays the flute in the school band, has weekly basketball practice and studies Robert Frost poems for English class – she is autistic. And so what’s important to Ginny includes starting every day with exactly nine grapes for breakfast, Michael Jackson, bacon-pineapple pizza and, most of all, getting back to Gloria so she can take care of her baby doll.

Joining Cheryl Akle on the night will be Natika Palka from Harlequin and R. M. Anderson, author of The Good Teacher. 

In the meantime, check out our full review, purchase a copy, start reading the opening pages, or read ‘Our Adopted Daughter’s Mysterious Request’, Benjamin Ludwig’s heartfelt article in the Sydney Morning Herald.
