The 10pm Question – Kate de Goldi

10pm questionREAD FOR BOOKCLUB

Chosen by Nadine

Frankie Parsons worries about many things and develops the habit of posing a serious question to his mother at 10pm every night. This YA novel is set in New Zealand.

❚ “My daughter has read this book too. What a lovely read! We loved the characters in this book and the way it made us feel both happy and sad. Very real.” – Nadine

❚ “I enjoyed this book especially for the actual 10pm question and how the mum was always able to soothe her sons anxieties despite having fairly substantial issues herself.  A wonderful heart warming book.” – Jo

❚ “One of the best youth novels I’ve read. Tackles traditional child anxieties in a unique way. I was drawn to Frankie, perhaps just in a motherly way – whatever the case, great book.” – Rachel

❚ “I truly judge approximately monthly whether or not my children are old enough yet for this book.  It is written with so much empathy and humour and I can’t wait to have a mini bookclub with my 2 kids and discuss all of the loveliness.  This book was the inspiration for me harassing, whoops I mean kindly entertaining, Rach every night with a 10pm question text.  Sorry for this Rach and quite frankly sorry Kate de Goldi.” – Suzy

*Long live the 10pm question, Suzy. The highlight of my evening!* -R
