It’s an all-Australian bestsellers list this week, with locally authored books coming to the fore! Nova Weetman’s latest book, The Edge of Thirteen, described by our impressed staff reviewer as ‘insightful and pitch perfect’ sits in the number one position.

For younger readers there’s a sweet Bluey picture book and one of the first four books in the wonderful new junior School of Monsters series from Sally Rippin.

The recent announcement of The Readings Children’s Book Prize shortlist has has a big influence on sales, with shortlisted books The Grandest Bookshop in the World, The Power of Positive Pranking and The Year the Maps Changed proving excellent choices for readers aged 9 and up. It’s also lovely to see the informative and fun Terry Denton’s Truly Amazing Guide to Everything bounce back into our top ten again, after selling out over Christmas and only recently coming back to our shelves.

Teens and YA readers are well catered for this week, with two books that foreground art and personal politics proving very popular, Asphyxia’s Future Girl and Leanne Hall’s The Gaps.
