by |May 24, 2016

Fans of Melina Marchetta, rejoice! The cover of her new book, Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil, has just been revealed. And it’s a little different…

This book is a departure from her usual children’s/teen books. We all fell in love with Looking for Alibrandi, Saving Francesca, The Piper’s Son, On the Jellicoe Road, The Gorgon in the Gully and her first fantasy, Finnikin of the Rock; now she’s back, however with her first adult book – Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil.

It’s part family saga, part crime fiction. I told you it was different.
