The Astrologer’s Daughter

22323949

A fast-paced high octane thriller/mystery. Avicenna Crowe is a Melbourne high school senior who drifts from place to place with her astrologer mother. Scarred in a house fire in which her Chinese-Australian father died, Avicenna is a super-bright, prickly loner with few friends. When her mother goes missing she’s determined to find her but rapidly becomes caught up with her mother’s clients and the unsolved death of a young girl thirty years earlier. Gritty Melbourne setting and realistic teen characters.

Here’s a great conversation between Rebecca Lim and Ambellin Kwaymullina on writing while indigenous/writing while Chinese on the BookWars website
