September book giveaway: Wordjazz for Stevie

A letter from the heart, written by a father to his profoundly handicapped daughter

You think you’ve got life sorted and then a child like Stevie comes along.

But don’t think of Stevie as a tragedy. Don’t think of Stevie as a problem. Stevie was just a little girl. A gift to the world.

A lot of bad things happened to her. But she changed the world for a lot of other little girls and boys.

Wordjazz for Stevie is a celebration of Stevie’s life, a life filled with pain and hurt but a life that also flowed out with love.

Read this book. It will change how you feel about many things. It will change how you feel about girls and boys like Stevie.

“Stevie is the kind of tragedy that only happens to other people,” says Jonathan Chamberlain, her father. “In this case it happened to Stevie. It was her tragedy, not mine. My job was to make her life better. What I didn’t realise then was how her life was going to make mine so much better.”

We have six copies of Wordjazz for Stevie to give away to readers who can answer this question:

Which one of Jonathan Chamberlain’s previous books was chosen by Dymocks Booksellers as one of their “100 great reads of the decade”?

The first six correct replies to appear in the comments below will be the winners; we’ll send the prize copies to any mailing address in Asia.
