Get Reading: The World Beneath


The World Beneath by Cate Kennedy


Rich and Sandy were once environmental activists. Twenty-five years later their 15 year-old daughter, Sophie, is the only thing they have in common and they've settled into the compromises of middle age. When Rich takes Sophie, who he hardly knows, on a trek into the Tasmanian wilderness, his overconfidence and her growing disillusion with him set off a chain of events no-one predicts. Acutely observed, The World Beneath displays that eye for everyday humour and tragedy which makes Kennedy's stories so appealing.

 Borrow The World Beneath from the ACT Public Library.
