Read full description of the books:
How do you make one of the toughest decisions in life when you're as lonely as a distant planet?
Callisto May knows a lot about planets. She could name all the moons of Jupiter, or tell you the dimensions of the Great Red Spot, but she doesn't know much about love. She's so used to pleasing other people that she has lost track of how to be herself. And now there's no one close enough to help: her boyfriend is way out of reach; her mother is distracted by 'sad ladies'; and her dad - well, his motto is 'be prepared', which is exactly what Cally wasn't. But in her struggle, Cally finds courage enough to fight through the fog of secrecy and silence that's suffocating her family.
Borrowed Light is an intensely honest, painful, funny book. Anna Fienberg writes with sensitivity and panache about the intricate relationships between family, friends and lovers.
'Fizzing with ideas, wit and passion.' - Agnes Nieuwenhuizen
'A wonderful book. It reminds me why writers write and readers read.' - Morris Gleitzman

Read information about the authorAnna Fienberg grew up in a house filled with books. Her mother was a teacher librarian who relished stories as much as chocolates. 'On Sunday mornings we'd all lie in bed with our books, lost in magical wardrobes, witches’ spells, genies’ magic… What we were going to read next was just as important in our family as what was for lunch!' says Anna.
Anna started writing stories when she was eight, but never imagined being an author. She studied psychology, fascinated by the dark world of dreams. She gave up counseling after an unfortunate incident with an enraged man and a chair (he missed!), began writing and scored the best job in the world. 'Working for School Magazine was a treat,' Anna says. 'I couldn't believe you could get paid for sitting back comfortably in your chair, cappuccino in hand, reading over a thousand books a year. Heaven!' Of course, as an editor she also had to write reviews and articles, stories and plays. One of those stories for School Magazine later became her first book.
