The White Guinea Pig

(1997)
A novel by

 
 
"Geraldine hadn't wanted the white guinea pig at all. But then a single, sudden act of sympathy exploded into something difficult and dangerous, like a kiss given to the wrong person."
Winner of the New South Wales State Literary Award, the Victorian Premier's Literary Award, and shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award. A novel about childhood, change and the mystery of a missing guinea pig. Filled with Ursula Dubosarsky's signature comic characters and situations as eleven-year-old Geraldine searches for belonging, both in her family and the wider world.
"You'll find yourself stopping to savour the small but penetrating insights offered on every page. It's a wonderful piece of writing that improves on every reading." The Age
"A sad tale? Actually not. You'll be moved by the sudden warm ending, with its lightness and wit, this is a comedy of some depth." The Observer
