buy these two books this holiday season.
For years I have been rereading a young adult fiction novel written by an Australian author named Jaclyn Moriarty. The novel is called The Year of Secret Assignments and it revolves around the lives of three girls who go to a private school in New South Wales, just outside Sydney. This year I got my hands on a book called Dreaming of Amelia by the same author. It’s a story set at the same...
