One YA Book One Community

Have you seen a copy of A Song Only I Can Hear while at the pool, grabbing a coffee, or waiting for your burger order?

150 copies of Barry Jonsberg’s young adult novel have been distributed to various venues across the region, as part of the One YA Book One Community project.

If you find a stickered copy of the book (as pictured) take it home and join others in the community as they also read the novel. When you’ve finished, pass it on to a friend, take it back to where you found it, or leave it in another location where others in the community will find it. 30 copies have been barcoded and are available to borrow from all Library branches until the end of January (these copies need to be returned to one of the 4 library locations throughout the region).

A Song Only I Can Hear is the story of Rob Fitzgerald, who’s determined to impress the new girl at school; a difficult task for a shy kid who is prone to panic attacks. An anonymous texter is sending Rob challenges, and they might just help … or not.

Don’t forget to share your thoughts about the book on social media using the hashtags:
