Margaret’s October Recommendation

Jellicoe RoadJellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

“I loved this book. Jellicoe Road is a complex, dense story set in the Australian bush and told in seventeen year old Taylor Markham’s fresh if sometimes harsh voice.   Marchetta weaves a tale that is part mystery, part romance, part boarding school drama, part coming of age novel.  Ultimately, though, it is much, much more than all of these parts. It’s a story about the ties to the family you are born into and the family that you choose. While this is a teen book and winner of the Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature, Jellicoe Road will resonate with many adult readers.”
