I enjoyed the talk by Lezanne Clannachan. In my view Jellybird is on of the best book titles we have encountered in the Good Read because it is memorable, it refers to the main character, and (as Lezanne explained) it is descriptive of the personality of the girl. I checked with Lezanne “who dun it” but I won’t spoil your enjoyment by revealing her answer!
Many of the authors we have read or listened to have gone on to win praise and prizes elsewhere. The latest is Nathan Filer – see the comments in the list on the right.
