Second Publication for Kate Foster

May 2022

The Bravest Word celebrates its Australian publication day today! This rescue story of love and trust between a boy and an abandoned dog is Kate Foster's second novel following the success of her debut PAWS, and deals with the important theme of childhood depression.

When eleven-year-old Matt finds Cliff, a hurt, neglected dog abandoned in the bush, he knows the brave little pup needs saving. He wants to help. But can he?

Lately, Matt has had way more bad days than good days. The pieces of his life just don’t seem to fit together any more and he doesn’t understand why. He’s finding it impossible to concentrate at school and has lost interest in the activities he used to love. Plus, he’s tired all the time.

Matt’s too afraid to share what’s really going on in his own head with anyone. His friends and family will never understand . . . maybe it’s not only Cliff who needs saving.

Available now in Australia.
