My Australian Story: Black Sunday by Evan McHughI read this book at the beginning of the year and it was very interesting and a great read. I couldnt put the book down and was often losing track of time whilst reading it.
People I know have read it and would recommend it to most people too. I think this was based on a true story and if it was then Evan McHugh has done loads of wonderful research.
The reason I did not rate this book five out of five stars is because I think Evan tried to make the boy in the story who is writing the journal too australian. Like with the way of talking and writing things is what people think australians say but most people dont. however besides that this book was great and anyone above 10 years of age should read it!

It is an important time for Nipper as he approaches his thirteenth birthday and must decide if he will leave school to work like his brother Jamie did the year before. He cannot wait to turn fourteen when he can try for the Bronze Medallion and join the Life Saving Club and, in the long term, gain work as a paid beach inspector. He secretly practises his lifesaving skills and on Black Sunday 6th of February when hundreds of swimmers are swept out to sea at Bondi, Nipper has a chance to use his skills and prove his worth as a lifesaver even though he is still under the official age. The text also subtly explores issues such as equality for women, the treatment of refugees, the indigenous, and the mentally ill. Structured around historical events, Black Sunday is a coming-of-age tale that strikingly evokes a young, self-assured Australia between the wars and a sun-drenched beach culture.
