'Jared Thomas continues to do what he does best, writing stories with grit, an authenticity of voice and characters who show strength in identity and culture. My Spare Heart further cements his solid record in writing for young people, and some of us older ones too.' Anita Heiss, award-winning author of Bila Yarrudhanggalangdhuray

'My Spare Heart perfectly captures the pain and pride of growing up First Nations. Phoebe navigates the mess, chaos and complexities of life with grace. She's as real, and as complicated, as you are. Her story will move you.' Rebecca Lim, award-winning author of Tiger Daughter

'A compelling exploration of complex families, messy friendships and one girl's journey to find her place in the world. Jared Thomas's writing is honest, raw and full of heart.' Tobias Madden, author of Anything But Fine

'Poignant and heart-breaking yet ultimately uplifting' The Chronicle
