Dirt Circus League
“I stumbled towards the Meat House, my body shaking with the violence that raged within me, as the realisation of the mistake I had made in coming here rose to the surface of my mind. This was the last place I should be. That thought was crossed by another, even more terrifying.
This is exactly where I belong.”
Set in remote far north Queensland, Dirt Circus League is a genre-bending young adult novel about the powerful allure of danger and the battles we face with our demons in a world beyond our control.
“It’s a wild ride of a book…it’s a great read, it’s fun, it’s exciting”
Dirt Circus League is a surrealist and paranormal mashup — think Mad Max meets Divergent — with a kick-arse female lead who never backs down.
“It was just a great representation of GIRL POWER”
Dirt Circus League will appeal to fans of Lili Wilkinson, Kelly Link and Veronica Roth as well as readers who love Kurt Vonnegut. Available in bookstores now.
“The plot is gripping and page-turning.”
And if you’re interested in where the first seeds of an idea Dirt Circus League came from, you can read about it on my blog post Misadventures in Cape York, 1983.
