Head Spinners: Six Stories to Twist Your Brain

Head Spinners: Six stories to twist your brain - Thalia Kalkipsakis Katharine is a judge for the Aurealis Awards. This review is the personal opinion of Katharine herself, and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of any judging panel, the judging coordinator or the Aurealis Awards management team. To be safe, I won't be recording my review here until after the AA are over.This collection is valuable in that there are stories there to help kids accept having a weird dad or dealing with a dead dog - sometimes the biggest problem a child has in their life, and it starts to overwhelm everything. The writing style was easy to get into, relatable to all and something a kid would enjoy if they found it amongst all the fandom-driven stuff taking up most of the shelves in stores these days.
