About the Author

Mat Larkin is full of it. I mean, he says he's a writer of exciting middle-grade adventure stories, but anyone could say that. He's been overheard telling people he crafts tales where the not-quite-ordinary meets the nearly impossible, but if that's true, what wouldn't he make up? Did he really write for the Zac Power series? Is this entire biography part of his cunning web of fiction? It seems likely. No-one with half a brain in their head believes he lives in Melbourne with an incredible wife and an improbable son. I'll give him this, though: The Orchard Underground is his first novel.


'Is there anything better than reading about a group of buddies taking on the world for the first time? The Orchard Underground made me laugh, clutch my chest, get misty-eyed and wish for that wonderful, confusing time when I was on the threshold of big changes and huge possibilities. I cheered Pri, Attica and Slotcar on at every turn and grew to love every big weirdo in this strange town. Larkin has perfectly captured the novelty, mystery, growing pains, silliness and emotional rollercoaster of the tween years, and wrapped it up into one wondrously odd and unpredictable adventure.' - Leanne Hall, author of Iris and The Tiger and This is Shyness -- Leanne Hall
The Orchard Underground
is a brilliant mystery that will keep you guessing, as good mysteries always do. It's fast-paced, utterly surprising in its plot, lush in its descriptions and packed with characters so real they step off the page.- Cath Crowley, author of Words in Deep Blue and the Gracie Faltrain series

-- Cath Crowley

Smart, mysterious and funny. This book will make you think, make you laugh, and keep you guessing.
- Recbecca Stead, author of When You Reach Me and Liar & Spy -- Rebecca Stead
I really enjoyed reading The Orchard Underground. It was fresh and funny, bursting with interesting characters, but Attica Stone stole the show. She's a Dangerous Idea, a Law Unto Herself, and probably a Very Bad Influence... naturally, I loved her.

- Penni Russon, author of The Endsister and Only Ever Always
