Sugar Sugar

By Carole Wilkinson

The first Young Adult fiction novel by internationally bestselling and award-winning Australian author Carole Wilkinson.

Jackie has left Australia with a psychedelic suitcase and a dream to become a world-famous fashion designer. She knows exactly where she’s going and how she’s going to get there. So how does a weekend in Paris send her spinning off-course? How does she end up somewhere she couldn’t even find on a map?

  • Special Mention on the 2010 International Youth Library’s White Ravens List
  • “A beautifully paced, closely observed and utterly compelling story about losing a dream and finding your passion. Wilkinson creates perfectly the aching uncertainty and glorious adventures of a girl on the road, and transports you so completely into an exotic and dangerous journey that you’re not reading this book, you’re living it.” Julia Lawrinson
  • “This convincing and inspiring adventure smells of freedom… it’s Wilkinson’s excellent characterisation – peppered with a touch of romance and big dreams – that mostly underpins the narrative drive, making for an engrossing page-turner.” Bookseller + Publisher
