Watercolours by Adrienne Ferreira

A breathtaking debut about family secrets, a child with an amazing artistic talent, and a startling censorship controversy in a small, tension-filled Australian town. the story of a boy artist, a river town and its mysterious underworld Eleven-year-old Novi just wants to blend in - not easy when you're named after a silkworm and have the most eccentric family in town. A descendent of the first Italian silk growers in northern New South Wales, he is an obsessive artist with a habit of drawing the stories of the people around him, and a secret conviction that the river murdered his grandfather. Young teacher Dom Best is new in town and must overcome his lack of confidence to support Novi's talent. together with Camille, the enigmatic school librarian, Dom encourages the boy to release his inhibitions and unravel his unusual family history through his art- though little can he imagine the consequences this will bring. Watercolours is a poignant debut novel with a mystery at its heart, an unexpected love story and a surprising twist. Most of all, it celebrates the clarity and colour a child's-eye view brings to the adult world. 'A stunner. It's note-perfect and the control of the shifting points of view is incredibly skillful. the descriptions of Novi's painting and his way of seeing the world are gut-wrenching. It's a really fine novel' MALCOLM KNOX
