We’re celebrating a new arrival in the Bongers household this week: the first advance copy of Henry Hoey Hobson.
The uncorrected proof in book form is now making its way to booksellers and reviewers ahead of its 1 July launch.
Here’s a sneak preview …
Twelve-year-old Henry Hoey Hobson arrives at his sixth school, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, to discover he’s the only boy in Year Seven.
Friendless, fatherless and non-Catholic, Henry is not only a Perpetual Sucker, but a bloodsucker, according to his catty classmates.
When he’s caught moving a coffin into the creepy house next door, it drives a stake through the heart of his hopes of fitting in.
His only chance to fight back is the school swimming carnival – sink-or-swim time in the treacherous waters of Year Seven.
HHH is a hero to cheer for ’til your tonsils hang out on strings.
So, what do you think?
