I just about jumped up and down last week when I heard the news that the Aussie YA contemp Good Oil (my review) by Laura Buzo is being published in the US under the title Love and Other Perishable Items. Straddling YA and the emerging genre New Adult, which focuses on college-age adults, Good Oil is told from the alternating perspectives of young but mature Amelia, a fifteen-year-old starting at Woolworth’s and her twenty-one year old trainer Chris, who’s struggling to find his identity post-uni. I was lucky enough to read it as part of the Go Aussie Book Tour last year and I adored these two and their hopeful but realistic relationship immediately. I’m so excited that more people will have the chance to read their story. The December release date may feel miles away, but the egalley is currently available on NetGalley. So what are you waiting for? Go and request now!
