Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.
It’s a Melina Marchetta novel! Of course, I want it. The Gorgon in the Gully is different from her other novels because it’s middle grade instead of YA. But the main character in it is Danny Griggs, Jonah Griggs’ little brother. Yeah, the same Jonah in the amazing Jellicoe Road. How can I say no to anything that has to do with Jonah? Unfortunately, this little bit of loveliness is only available in Australia and not the rest of the world. Lucky Aussies! Anyone coming to the Philippines from Australia any time soon? 🙂
Here’s the summary from Melina Marchetta’s website:
Beyond the basketball courts and classrooms of St. Raph’s is a gully where things disappear forever. Danny Griggs has heard stories about a Gorgon that lies down there. So why does Danny volunteer to face the Gorgon when he’s been petrified of everything all his life?
You go, Danny Griggs! I haven’t even met you but I’m already rooting for you. What about the rest of you, what book is in your wishlist?
