This novel falls under the Young Adult category but I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. Not just the content but the way it is written. This is a special book.

It’s Your World
Gina says ‘It’s your world,’ but it doesn’t seem that way to Evie, especially after Evie’s dad has a brain haemorrhage. But Evie doesn’t just moan her plight; she writes it. She writes about a mother she never met, an aunt she hasn’t seen in forever and all the other stuff you’re supposed to get up to when you’re fifteen. But it doesn’t stop there or even settle down when her dad comes home from hospital.
Alcohol, existentialism and hair dye, will Evie verse them all and come out on top of the world?
After all, Evie’s not really evil, she’s just up to no good.
A refreshingly different debut novel from a Mornington Peninsula author. It’s Your World is a clever YA exploration of family dynamics and self-examination. It is written in verse, a vehicle that showcases Kristy-Lee’s versatility and skill in a challenging medium she makes look effortless. Watch out for this author – the voice is strong in this one!
