Teachers, parents, history lessons, pimples, slumber parties, horses - a charming and intelligent poetry book about teenage life.
In The Book of Whispers, Julie O'Callaghan has written a book to delight young teenagers and adults alike. Told through the whispering voice of a witty, likeable, mischievous young girl, the poems paint a three dimensional account of adolescent life at school, at home, or in a best-friends' bedroom.
Julie O'Callaghan has written four books of poems for adults, and two for children. She received the Michael Hartnett Poetry Award in 2001.
