    Haunted Australia by John Heffernan
    This book is a collection of short stories about ghosts that are located in Australia. They are very good because I have visted some of the places mentioned in the book. The story I liked most was about the ghost in the Princess Theatre in Melbourne. Some of the stories were scary.

    Specky Magee-Garry Lyon & Felice Arena
    The Specky Magee series is a great selection of books. There aren’t many Aussie Rules books around and this one relates to just about every young footy player aspiring to be the best. Arena and Lyon combine footy knowledge and story creativity for a masterpiece series. I really feel that this book truly relates to me and I feel such a connection with the book being based so near to where I live. 10/10
