Pride (busybird publishing $29.95) is an enthralling coming of age story about friendship, bonds, and how the choices of our past can come back to shape our future.

Luke Miggs wants more than what small-town life has to offer – the grind of chores on the family farm, playing footy, and drinks with friends. At 18, is it too late to dream? In what begins a story about a young guy and his love of football, comes a story about so much more.

Engagingly written by Lazaros Zigomanis, the narrative explores the themes of racism and responsibility in an entertaining yet thought provoking manner. With $1 dollar from every book sold donated to the Indigenous Literary Foundation, Pride is a must read for any young adult reader.
