Juno Jones, Word Ninja
A disaster has happened. Muttonbird Bay School might be closing. I mean, FOREVER. Juno Jones loves her school. She does not want to have to go to the posh school up the hill or the one down the hill next to the sewage treatment plant. But the Men in Suits want to close Muttonbird Bay Primary down. And there’s only one thing Juno and her classmates can do to stop it …Read. Which is perfectly fine for people like Perfect Paloma, but Juno Jones is A Kid Who Doesn’t Like Reading. Will she be able to learn to like it in time to save her beloved school? It might take the unthinkable to make it happen. Juno Jones might need to become… A WORD NINJA!
We need more junior fiction like this – clever and with characters who are as flawed, fabulous and authentic as the little people in our homes and schools.
