TRENDING THIS WEEK:
JoJo is back (and better than ever!). Some of you might remember the chart topping song ‘Leave (Get Out)’, which catapulted Joana Levesque to stardom at the young age of 13. It’s been over ten years now and she is in the final stages of prepping her brand new album, the track list looks amazing and it is going to include all your new breakup and party anthems!

This week’s must read is Melina Marchetta’s On The Jellicoe Road, a compelling novel sure to have you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. The story is set on the life of Taylor Markham, a leader of a local boarding school on Australia’s Jellicoe Road. It’s certainly not your typical adult novel, as well as the standard subject of young love the book has a big focus on tertiary wars and the mysterious case of a young boy who disappeared in the 80s.
“Taylor Markham is not a popular choice. She is erratic, has no people skills and never turns up to meetings. Not to mention the incident when she ran off in search of her mother and only got halfway there. But she’s lived at Jellicoe School most of her life and as leader of the boarders that’s her greatest asset. Especially now the cadets, led by the infamous Jonah Griggs, have arrived. The territory wars between the boarders, townies and cadets are about to recommence.
“But Taylor has other things on her mind: a prayer tree, the hermit who whispered in her ear, and a vaguely familiar drawing in the local police station. Taylor wants to understand the mystery of her own past. But Hannah, the woman who found her, has suddenly disappeared, leaving nothing but an unfinished manuscript about five kids whose lives entwined twenty years ago on the Jellicoe Road.”
