The Book Ninja
Ali Berg & Michelle Kalus
Simon & Schuster, $35 Frankie is a book worm with a woeful love life. She decides to rectify her relationship status by leaving copies of her favourite books on Melbourne public transport with her contact details on the seventhto-last page, in the hopes of finding a similarly book-loving boyfriend. What could possibly go wrong? A laugh-outloud charmer that by its very premise can’t help but appeal to book readers.
