You Might Have Missed... Tensy Farlow and the Home for Mislaid Children

by Jen Storer (Penguin, 2009). This is a wonderful story about an orphan without a guardian angel to protect her. But Tensy is no ordinary girl, and perhaps there’s a deeper reason for this grave anomaly.

Jen has a unique and enchanting way with words, and she uses an omniscient, humorous narrator to weave a captivating, New Age tale.

Shortlisted for the 2010 Aurealis Award, the 2010 CBCA Younger Readers Award, the 2010 WAYRBA children’s choice awards and the 2010 inaugural Prime Minister’s Literary Awards, Tensy Farlow is a fabulous, challenging choice for children aged 10-13.

An absolute delight to read, it’s a novel to nourish the heart and soul.
