      I loved this book, but it kept making me cry! A beautiful story about a young woman coming to terms with a very difficult, but nevertheless very real situation. Although Little Wing is much shorter than Mahalia, I think it can only be appreciated by older teens (not 14-year-old at a 18-yearold reading level) because the characters deal with very fragile, very mature issues in very subtle way that younger readers probably wouldn't pick up on. I read Mahalia when I was 14 or 15, but after reading [...]

      The Little Wing is a two part story. Followed by Mahalia. But in the Little Wing it explains what Emily is doing while Matt is taking care of theie daughter. I really enjoyed reading this book because it opened my eyes to be more aware of the choices i make. Everything has a consequnce. Some may be good but others might not. In the Little wing I come to understand why she felt it was necessary to leave her partner and child behind. Emily has been living in the Blue Mountains outside Sydney, with [...]

      I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I just picked it up in my school library, not expecting much from it. I've just finished it after just a few hours of reading. The way the main character, Emily, develops through the book is amazing. The author has been sensitive when describing her feelings and it feels so real. You really can connect to Emily, although she seems slightly odd at the beginning. You learn why she feels how she does, and how she slipped into depression. I really enjoyed this book, a [...]

      I agree that Mahalia was better but I just feel so connected to this story line I count 'Little Wing' as one of my favourites as well. For me the it's the delicacy of the characters makes them feel so real, Pete and Martin were my favourites.And Emmy stays with her mother's old friend, not grandmother.

      I am a huge Joanne Horiman fan - she is probably my favourite Ya writer. However, this is probably my least favourite of her works - beautifully written, short, fairly inconsequential.Still better than most out there!

    6. Tina says:

      It was good and sweet. Coming of age, taking responsibility and dealing with postpartum depression. Learned some Australian English

    7. Sophie says:

      I always found Em to be the most interesting character in Mahalia, and wanted to know her story. This does that, but it wasn't anywhere near as interesting as the first book.

    8. Meghan Douglas says:

      A companion story to "Mahalia", best read after you know and love Matt and Mahalia.

    9. Jess says:

      Average book about girl recovering from some sort of depression, finding her refuge with friends.

    10. Maddie says:

      mahalia was better but i still like this one

    11. Melissa Burtt says:

      A quick read with an interesting story.

      After Mahalia, this was a bit of a let down. It was good to see it from the Mum's perspective though.
