She’ll need to change everything she believes in if she wants to survive.
The King’s Fool
Published by ABC Books
The masks people wear are sometimes truer than the faces behind them…
If there’s one thing Perry Brightfield has learnt in her fifteen years of life it’s that kids can smell a freak.
Perry has no parents, no home and no friends. Her guardian Jurd has dragged her from one town to the next for as long as she can remember. She hopes he’s crazy because if he’s not then things may get worse.
Jurd says she’s in terrible danger.
He says she’s not from this world at all.
The King’s Fool was a finalist in the Aurealis Awards 2006 and is on the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge book list.
