This sort of stuff simply doesn’t happen without the support of many. So I’d like to thank you, readers, teachers, librarians, parents, booksellers and reviewers. I’d like to thank my editor, Amanda Curtin, and my publisher, Cate Sutherland, along with the awesome team at Fremantle Press. I actually couldn’t have done it without you.
