Being Here has been shortlisted for the Prime Minister's Literary Awards 2012! This is very exciting news since the PM's award is not only prestigious but also the richest literary award in Australia. I am on the shortlist with some very strong YA books so I feel doubly privileged.

Part quirky journal, part detective fiction, this wild and witty novel is a laugh-out-loud comedy about two unlikely friends who are drawn into a dramatic series of events through their mutual mistrust of their new English teacher.
What's an eleven-year-old boy to do when an ugly dog called Blacky appears on his bed and tells him he has been given the mission to rescue God? This is a 'fast and funny book' from CBCA-shortlisted author Barry Jonsberg.
