Katniss is an incredible protagonist. She’s humble, she’s sincere, she’s strong, she’s compassionate, she’s smart. She’s everything I’d like my daughter to look up to and learn from.

A guiding light who can inspire girls to take charge of themselves and grab hold of life to achieve anything they want.
The Secret Runners of New York is a great new release from Matthew Reilly that’s different to anything he’s written before. Great plot. Great story-telling. Great read. This is New York city with a twist.
