Antarctica is getting hotter …
Summer Wright, hippie turned TV production assistant, organises her life down to the minute. And when her project-management-guru boyfriend, Adrian, proposes marriage — right on schedule — she will reach the peak of The Cone of Certainty.
At least, that’s the plan – until adventure-show queen Cougar Gale intervenes. Suddenly Summer is impersonating Cougar in Antarctica: learning glaciology and climate science on the fly, building a secret igloo, improvising scripts based on Dynasty, and above all trying not to be revealed as an impostor.

“A movingly-great read! A great story teller. … [A] resilient, eccentric character who will live long in both heart and memory.” John Wenitong (Pemulwuy Weeatunga), author of The Fethafoot Chronicles
Sophie can’t walk or talk, but behind her disability hides a keen intelligence. Living on The Styx River cattle station with her father and a nanny, Sophie is acutely aware that she is a non-person. She feels as voiceless and isolated as the wallabies of The Wall, an eerie wilderness of basalt lava tubes forming a natural stone labyrinth that protects its remote lushness from anyone foolish enough to wander in.

When Mya Paw Wah commits a crime during a political protest in Yangon, she flees the city to avoid the fate of her father and brother – one a political prisoner, the other killed in the police action against the protest. Military Intelligence agents, human traffickers, landmines and snakes are among the dangers Mya faces in her journey to Karen State, near the Thai border, to find her exiled mother. To survive, she plays many roles – bar-girl, novice nun, military porter, teacher – some by choice, others forced on her, as she struggles to overcome anger and despair, and maintain hope for a better life.
