Book Reviews with Liv

Liv and Ken chat about the new junior fiction book, HUDA WAS HERE

A delightful and hilarious story from a CBCA award-winning author, about a lion-hearted girl who just wants the best for her family.

When her dad loses his job as a security officer and has to work interstate, Huda convinces her brother Akeal to sneak out at night to make mischief, hoping to force their dad’s bosses to hire him back.

A thoroughly entertaining story full of hijinks, courage and hilarity.
