About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'This novel puts a 2009 twist on the whole sex, surf and sun premise that was so beautifully captured in the ground-breaking book Puberty Blues ... Measuring Up is a strong Australian tale where you can almost taste the sea air and feel the sand beneath your toes. The author employs colloquial language and terminology, while ensuring that the language of the book is neither coarse nor crude but instead fun and light-hearted. The pace is quick and punchywith lively characters that rise well above the page. A fun, humorous coming-of-age story to be enjoyed by boys and girls alike, it will certainly resonate with readers over 15 years of age.'

--Bookseller & Publisher

'... a modern-day homage to Puberty Blues.'

--Courier Mail

'Measuring Up is a thoughtful, engaging first novel ... The narrative style is frank and personal. Jonah holds none of his thoughts or feelings back from readers, immediately engaging them and ensuring his story stays with them after the last page is turned. That, in itself, is an achievement ... affecting contemporary teenagers, including self-esteem, family dynamics, friendships, sexuality and how people define themselves through their personal relationships. There are plenty of elements here to hold readers' attention. Highly recommended.'

--Sun Herald
