Out Of This Place | Emma Cameron | Book Review

I think whenever I read a mediocre book I should just balance it out with an Australian young adult book. For real, I have no idea what they do in the land down under, but they sure do produce a hell of a lot of great reads. After reading a particularly terrible American contemporary book, […]
