The Goodbye Year

The Goodbye Year

It’s the start of 2020 and Harper is filled with anticipation about being in the final year of Riverlark Primary. She wants a leadership role, the comfort of her friendship group, and to fly under the radar of Riverlark’s mean-boy.

"...really nailed that feeling of being on the cusp of growing up. We often say books are relatable, but in this case it’s so easy to empathise with Harper because most of us understand what she’s going through. The Goodbye Year is an engaging, entertaining and relatable novel that I highly recommend to readers entering those big and exciting teenage years."
