    'ADVERSITY MCALLISTER IS THEATRICAL, KIND, SMART AS A WHIP AND OH SO BRAVE. I WANT HER TO BE MY BEST FRIEND'- Katrina Nannestad, author of Olive of Groves and The Girl, the Dog and the Writer in Rome There's never a good time to be orphaned - or abandoned ... especially when you are twelve years old, and it's the Great Depression. In 1928, Shakespearean actors, the McAllisters, are forced to leave their daughter Adversity at the Emu Swamp Children's Home.They fully intend to return, but things don't go according to plan. Then, to make matters worse, Scrimshaw, a villainous theatrical agent, hears the talented Addie sing. He plots to use her in his next money-making venture, but when he turns up at Emu Swamp to collect his prize, Scrimshaw will find she's run away. Together with Macbeth, her Shakespeare-quoting cockatiel, Addie is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. PRAISE'Feisty, brave and fearless, Addie McAllister is on a courageous quest to right wrongs. She is a hero who is unstoppable. A must-read.' - Susanne Gervay, author of the I am Jack series'Addie McCallister captured my heart from the outset. An irresistible read with a powerful sense of time and place.' - Jen Storer, author of the bestselling Truly Tan series'A sure-fire hit, both for parents (for its take-away messages and great charm) and for readers 10+ who will love feisty Addie and all her exciting adventures.' - Better Reading
