Giveaway: Catch A Falling Star

Catch A Falling Star, the new coming-of-age story by multiple-award-winner Meg McKinlay is about loss and grief, dealing with change and fighting to hold on to what you can, while letting go of what you can’t.

It’s 1979 and the sky is falling. Skylab, that is. Somewhere high above Frankie Avery, one of the world’s first space stations is tumbling to Earth. And rushing back with it are old memories. Things twelve-year-old Frankie thought she’d forgotten. Things her mum won’t talk about, and which her little brother Newt never knew. Only ... did he?

Based on an international media event, this is a story that straddles the intersection between science and belief, between logic and magical thinking and to celebrate its recent release, the celestial people of Walker Books Australia are giving away two copies of this middle grade fiction masterpiece.
