Item: One personally signed copy of Three Things About Daisy Blue, the new Young Adult novel by Kate Gordon.
Book Information: Daisy Blue is not happy. She doesn’t want to go to Bali. And she doesn’t want to keep a diary of her trip. And she doesn’t want to hang out with Paulina Gifford. She does want to be a size zero and famous.
Paulina Gifford is very studious. She is excited about the Bali trip and is keen to use her journal solely for recording her historical and cultural investigations. She thinks Daisy Blue is some kind of alien species.
But Bali surprises them both – and soon they are in danger of falling in ‘like’ with each other. Is it possible that the fashionista and the earnest nerd might find something in common?
Age Range: 12-16
Brief Bio: Kate was born and raised on the North-West Coast of Tasmania, in a town known for its tulips, and where you can get the best fish and chips in the world. She is a former children’s librarian and manager of the children’s and YA section at a major book shop. Now, she is a FTW (full time writer).
Kate trained as an actor, but wasn’t very good at it. She writes on her couch, in the early morning, with her cat, Mephistopheles “Danger” Gordon sitting behind her making funny noises at birds.
Kate spends most of her time with her nose in a book, and when she’s not reading or writing, she likes bending herself into funny positions doing yoga, watching movies, playing Scrabble and listening to music you can headbang to. Visit her blog www.kategordon.com.au
