Win a copy of 'Crossing' and a prize pack of books for your school!

To celebrate the May 2014 release of Crossing, the new novel by Catherine Norton, we're having a competition! What can you win?
Three winning entries will receive a prize pack of books valued at $50 plus a signed copy of Crossing.
To enter, go to the author’s website, read an excerpt from Crossing and imagine in 25 words or less what you would do in Cara’s situation with ninety-two eggs. Cook an omelette for a giant?  Start an easter bunny franchise? The longest egg and spoon race ever? 
Entries close Tuesday 10 June 2014. (Open to all residents of Australia aged between 10 and 18.) So get cracking! (Oops, sorry.)


Twelve-year-old Cara has grown up in the shadow of the Wall, in a closed world of food shortages and high security. Her parents are dedicated to their secret work for the government, and it’s only a matter of time before her gifted younger sister follows in their footsteps.
It’s all Cara has ever known, until the summer she meets Ava and Leon. Ava doesn’t care about rules. Nothing will ever be the same.

    I would trade - eggs for milk or bread. Eventually you'd have a balance. richardnmelnnoah@bigpond.com
