            Surviving school with one eye open. Ross Maloy just wants to be a normal seventh grader. He does not want to lose his hair, or wear a weird hat, or deal with the kids at school who don't know what to say to 'the cancer kid'. But with a sudden and horrifying diagnosis of a rare ey...e cancer, blending in is off the table. Based on Rob Harrell's real-life experiences, and filled with his cartoons and illustrations, this very personal and poignant novel is an unforgettable, hilarious and uplifting story of survival, and of finding music, magic and laughter in all of life's weirdness. EARLY PRAISE FOR WINK: 'Wink is the story of a boy's survival that is both deeply personal and wildly funny. It's fun, it's important, and it's got songs! Rock on, Rob Harrell! Batpig forever!' - Max Brallier, New York Times bestselling author of Last Kids on Earth 'I loved Wink! Heartbreakingly funny, this book is proof that laughter is the best form of medicine. A smart, likable story that's full of heart.' - Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries 'Wink has all the right elements: humour, heart, and a Batpig. A deeply personal and moving story, it will (pun alert) rock you to the core.' - Terri Libenson, award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie 'With a cast of characters that feel both deeply human and fully seen, this book has shot onto my list of all-time favourite books. Simply superb!' - Ingrid Law, author of Newbery Honor Book Savvy 'Funny, moving, and ultimately triumphant, Wink is a powerful story of everyday resilience, and of the different types of family that unexpectedly sprout up in the wake of tragedy.' - M.A. Larson, author of Pennyroyal Academy

            It was 1914 when Sister Alice Ross-King left Australia for the war. Nursing was her passion - all she had ever wanted to do. But Alice couldn't have imagined what she would see. She served four long years and was brave, humble and endlessly compassionate. Using extracts from Alic...e's actual diaries kept in the Australian War Memorial, this story captures the danger, the heartache and the history of the young nurse who would one day become the most decorated woman in Australia.
