Teresa is an outstanding addition to the New Australian series. Aussie Reviews


A fascinating historical novel ... insightful and entertaining. Sunday Telegraph


Teresa gives us a wonderful character who shares her family’s journey through the excitement, frustration and joys of becoming Australian. Thanks for a great read.

Jackie Hawkes, Teacher/Librarian

Inspired by Deb’s own family’s story of survival, comes a novel of courage, bravery and one very determined little girl.



And GREAT news! Teresa has been shortlisted for the 2017 West Australian Young Readers’ Book Awards


Stories such as this are immensely important because they speak of that place from which we have come.
