Waterstones Says

From the author of the acclaimed The Shark Caller comes a moving, compelling story of two girls carrying their own secrets through the vast and threatening Australian Outback.

The Song Walker is an extraordinary new story of friendship, discovery and courage from Zillah Bethell, author of The Shark Caller which won the Wales Book of the Year and the Edward Stanford Children's Travel Book of the Year 2022.

"There are three questions that I need to find the answers to: Where am I? What am I doing here? And... Who am I?"

When a young girl wakes up in the middle of the desert, she has no idea who she is. She's wearing one shoe, a silky black dress, and she's carrying a strange, heavy case. She meets Tarni, who is on a mysterious quest of her own. Together, the two girls trek across the vast and ever-changing Australian Outback in search of answers. Except both are also hiding secrets.

I usually write up a short summary of the story but I won't this time because 1) I don't think I could do it justice and 2) I think readers need to just dive into it and discover... It actually took me a... More

“A spiritual story filled with secrets of the heart, and an ingenious mystery to solve. An unbreakable bond between two new friends from such different walks of life. This book is ‘deadly’!! I loved it!!”

I love to travel in the books I read… and I have never read a book before filled with narrative from the perspective of the First Country people of Australia. The landscape, wildlife and plants of the bush, almost... More
