Endorsements for The War Within
A challenging novel about war, politics and the Muslim world Teenagers mature during the course of dramatic events as they work through their grief, fears and need to belong. A most challenging novel.
Cecile Ferguson, Lollipops – What’s on for kids
Rosanne Hawke brings to life memorable characters and a colourful and exotic setting in this fast moving adventure story, a real page-turner that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drags you through the action. Full of suspense and intrigue, it’s about faith, courage and friendship in the face of confusion, violence, grief and hostility. It’s realistic, yet refreshingly optimistic, and thoroughly readable. I found it a satisfying and rewarding novel.
Kate Graham, Youth Express
This book should be compulsory reading for students studying politics or society based subjects.
Lesley White, teacher, Fiction Focus
[The War Within] is more than an adventure. Besides the issues of grief, culture and war, it explores the need for third culture kids to return to the place where they grew up, in order to fully adjust in adult life…Rosanne’s observations of the TCK experience are profound.
Beth Wyse, TEAMworld
[All the elements of successful cinema are present in [The War Within]: the exotic location, a developing love story, a kidnap, death and fighting, even family reunion. A real breath of fresh air, another taste of the Aladdin story for me.
