Dear Tracey

I don't know why I'm answering your ad, to be honest. It's not like I'm into pen pals, but it's a boring Sunday here, everyone's out, and I thought it'd be something different...

Dear Mandy

Thanks for writing. You write so well, much better than me. I put the ad in for a joke, like a dare, and yours was the only good answer...


Two teenage girls. An innocent beginning to friendship. Two complete strangers who get to know each other a little better each time a letter is written and answered.

Mandy has a dog with no name, an older sister, a creepy brother, and some boy problems. Tracey has a horse, two dogs and a cat, an older sister and brother, and a great boyfriend. They both have hopes and fears... and secrets.

About the Author

John Marsden is an outstanding writer of immense popularity. His first novel, So Much To Tell You, won the 1988 Children's Book of the Year Award, the Alan Marshall Award, a KOALA Award and has received international critical acclaim. Letters From The Inside was shortlisted for the 1992 Children's Book Council Book of the Year award and in 1995 was named one of America's outstanding teenage novels of the year and runner-up for the Dutch Children's Book of the Year award. John's Tomorrow series has been described by the Daily Advertiser as without a doubt the best series for younger readers that an Australian writer has ever produced.

John Marsden

A trained educator with a natural gift for storytelling, John Marsden is arguably Australia’s foremost writer of Young Adult fiction.

Whilst working at the prestigious Geelong Grammar School, Marsden made the decision to write for teenagers, following his dissatisfaction with his students’ apathy towards reading and the observation that teenagers simply weren’t reading any more. Marsden then wrote So Much To Tell You in only three weeks, and the book was published in 1987. The book sold record numbers and won numerous awards including “Book of the Year” as awarded by the Children’s Book Council of Australia.

In 1993 Marsden published Tomorrow, When the War Began the first book in the Tomorrow series and his most acclaimed and best-selling work to date. Recently it was selected in the American Library Association list of 100 Best Books for Teens since 1966.

Marsden has won every major writing award in Australia for young people’s fiction, including what Marsden describes as one of the highlights of his career, the 2006 Lloyd O’Neil Award for contributions to Australian publishing. This award means that Marsden is one of only five authors to be honoured for lifelong services to the Australian book industry. John Marsden was also nominated for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2008, the world’s largest children’s and youth literature award, and the second largest literature prize in the world.
