Description - The Golden Day by Ursula Dubosarsky
Ursula Dubosarsky is the Australian Children's Laureate for 2020 - 2021
There were only eleven of them, like eleven sisters all the same age in a large family. Because it was such a very small class, they had a very small classroom, which was perched at the very top of the school - up four flights of stairs, up in the high sky, like a colony of little birds nesting on a cliff. 'Today, girls,' said Miss Renshaw, 'we shall go out into the beautiful Gardens and think about death.'
In the Gardens they meet a poet. What follows is inexplicable, shocking, a scandal. What really happened that day? Is 'the truth' as elusive as it seems? And do the little girls know more than they are letting on?
A haunting and unforgettable novel from a multi-award-winning author.
'The Golden Day is the sort of book that churns something up deep inside the reader; it will be as hard for an adult to forget as for the young people age 12 and older for whom it is intended.' Meghan Cox Gurdhon, 'Behind Closed Doors' in The Wall Street Journal Sunday August 11 2013.
