Outback Wonder by Juliet M Sampson - Review!!!

Imagine my surprise when the sweet Juliet Sampson offered to send me a paperback copy of her latest book, Outback Wonder. Of course i jumped at the chance to review it. I just finished it, so here are my thoughts...


Outback Wonder follows the story of seventeen year old Hannah. After her parents' separation, she struggles with the fact her father walked out on her and her mother. She blames herself badly. At the beginning she is diagnosed with depression and i really felt for her. This drew me into the book straight away, as i too have been there (not with my parents separating. They are still together. With depression.) I hoped she would pull through. I often went through the same feelings when i was Hannah's age.
Out of the blue, Hannah receives an email from her dad inviting her to spend some time with him in the Flinder's Ranges. She is reluctant to go at first, but she finally accepts.
From here, we are thrust into a great journey of not only self discovery, but descriptions of the beautiful Australian bush. Juliet paints a vivid image of Lake Eyre and the outback. I could imagine myself being there.
Hannah meets Sam, a cute young pilot. I loved reading about their budding romance, and i had hoped to read more about Sam and Hannah when he came to Adelaide. But Juliet leaves room for your imagination to go on an adventure of its own.
I really enjoyed Outback Wonder and recommend it to all lovers of Young Adult fiction.
5/5 shooting stars.

May 2069 ... Blood coated bodies littered the ground as the mushroom cloud dissipated in the distance. Horror struck faces stared up at me, frozen forever with tears streaking down soot-covered cheeks. I swallowed hard as I stared into their dead eyes.
“Colizan, would you care to join us for a walk?” Father asked, pulling me from the image in my history book.
I slammed the cover shut and smiled. “Of course, it would be my pleasure.”
The warm sun glinted off the quartz sidewalk as my father, mother, and I strolled from our assigned dwinn in the Northern territory of Atal. Winding our way through the gardens which led to Common Park had always been their preferred route. Picture perfect displays of green grass, sparkling quartz, lush flowers, and elaborate water features dotted the landscape. Mother and Father chatted enthusiastically just ahead of me while I took in the scenery––the same scenery I’d enjoyed every day for eighteen years. I tilted my head back and appreciated the glass and quartz buildings that lined the sky. Some were tall and towering, others round and inviting; I loved them all. I sighed and quickened my pace as we approached my favorite part of the city––the museum. It reminded me of a picture I’d once seen of the Sydney Opera House in Australia, but instead of white and cream concrete, it was all glass. Ever since I was young, I always made it a point to stop and read the plaque outside, and today was no exception.
“ATAL. Est. 2027. Redesigned from the ashes of Atlanta.”
An image of a Genesis machine hovered over the war-struck city in the foreground, and in the background stood the utopian paradise left in its wake. The large spaceship-like device, with its metallic domed body and long tendrils of machinery hanging down, had always fascinated me.
