McKinlay - A single stoneShortlisted for the 2016 CBCA Awards, this unusual novel has many twists and turns before the story line becomes clear.  At its end, we are able to determine that it’s a story of one person’s struggle to break free from the confines of a community who have endeavoured long and hard to prevent others from discovering an alternate world.   Tucked away behind mountains, Jena pieces together evidence to prove that there is a world beyond their enclave and that that world is not as foreboding as it has been  described by the community elders – the mothers.
