Wink by Rob Harrell is a heart-warming and uplifting story for Middle Years’ readers (10+ yrs) and is based on the author’s own experience as a child with rare eye cancer. As it is a multi-modal text, it can be enjoyed through a combination of narrative, phone/text bubbles, illustrations and comics.
This novel is thought-provoking and will challenge young readers, but it is the perfect next read for Yr 7 students who have enjoyed Wonder and Lenny’s Book of Everything. Teachers’ Notes are also available on the publisher’s website.
