The Gorgon in the Gully - Melina Marchetta As always, Melina Marchetta has given me a cast of characters to cherish forever. Every. Single. One. Of. Them. I will hold in my heart forever. This story was just sweet and funny and was all about bringing friendships together on the playground. There was also lessons to be learned--as there should be in children's stories--about choices, consequences, finding courage, integrity, new vocabulary, and good character building. A couple of Melina's characters from her previous works also made cameos here. What I really want is to read more books about these kids (a series or companion pieces even) to see where they all go and who they become.
