Four books that changed Justine Larbalestier

Justine Larbalestier is an Australian-American writer. Her novels include Razorhurst, Liar, How to Ditch Your Fairy, and the Magic or Madness trilogy.

One of four books that changed her, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:
If You Come Softly
Jacqueline Woodson

I give people If You Came Softly when they demand proof that novels for teens can be as good as the best novels for adults. In a scant 200 pages Woodson delves deep into New York City's geographical, class and racial fissures and then she breaks your heart.
Read about another book on the list.
