Product Description
 
In faraway Nullaboo, Gemma Hart's day isn't going well. Her family might be evicted from their farm, and her science competition topic is march flies. How can she possibly win against perfect Nina, who gets to study butterflies? But wait, that's not a feather in Gemma?s special bug catcher . . . it's a fairy! Janomi the fairy isn?t supposed to talk to humans, but desperately needs help. Her grandfather has been captured by the silver spiders. Gemma agrees to help Janomi, and to keep the fairies' existence a secret. But her bug catcher has recorded their conversation - and Nina finds it. With a media frenzy taking over Nullaboo, a secret government agency barges in to take control, and suddenly the fairy colony is under an even bigger threat. Gemma and her kooky family, school and resourceful neighbours must take matters into their own hands in an against-all-odds bid to save the last fairy colony on Earth.In faraway Nullaboo, Gemma Hart's day isn't going well.

Fleur Ferris spent the first seventeen years of her life growing up on a farm in Patchewollock, north-west Victoria. She then moved twenty times in twenty years. During this time, Fleur sometimes saw the darker side to life while working for a number of years as a police officer and a paramedic. She now lives a more settled lifestyle on a rice farm in southern New South Wales, with her husband and three young children. Fleur?s colourful and diverse background has given her unique insight into today?s society and an endless pool of experiences to draw from. When she isn?t weaving this through young adult fiction, reading or spending time with her family, you will find her with friends, talking about art, books and travel.Risk is Fleur's first novel for young adults, and in 2016 she will publish her second novel, Black.
