About this item

"It's Bladerunner meets Peter Pan with a bit of sweetness, sadness and tension."Sunday Age

"Fabulously compelling . . . Hall casts a spell and draws you in."Weekend Australian

"Combining reality with a nightmarish world, she creates a third state in which you are never quite sure if your feet are touching the ground . . . As the battle between night and day continues inQueen of the Night, Hall very cleverly explores the yin and the yang of human nature."Saturday Age

Leanne Hall won the Text Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing in 2009 for her spellbinding debutThis Is Shyness. The novel received outstanding reviews and was shortlisted for a number of major Australian literary awards.

Queen of the Night is set six months after This Is Shyness. Nia has tried to forget Wolfboy, the mysterious boy she spent one night with in Shyness. He said he'd call but didn't. And then Wolfboy calls. Things are changing in the suburb of Shyness, where the sun doesn't rise and dreams and reality are mingled. Wolfboy needs help to save their friend Paul from a dangerous subculture.

Queen of the Night is about the impossibility of recreating the past and the pain of facing up to reality. About finding the truth when you can't see clearly. Wildgirl and Wolfboy must learn to trust each other again and find their way through the darkness.

Highly recommended for ages fourteen and up.
