The Girl From Snowy River by Jackie French was really good. It is about a girl named Flinty whose parents and oldest brother died, and she has to support her two younger siblings while her second eldest brother is working away from home. It is set during WWII in Australia. She sees a ghost while on 'The Rock' and forms a friendship. The ghost is from the future and tellls her things that makes her question her future. The Girl From Snowy River continues the saga of Australia that started with A Waltz For Matilda, although you can read them in any order. This is a good book for people that love historical fiction, or just a good story.
