Hannah would much rather be back in Australia, starting high school with her friends. But Japan turns out to be nothing like she'd imagined, and when Hannah and her new friend Miki find an ancient message in the stationery shop, they are drawn into solving a mysterious riddle.

Praise For Hannah's Winter
“The mystery weaves fantasy so well throughout that you’ll become mystified into believing the many possibilities.”
Newton's Book News

“A gripping read that will stay with readers long after they have finished the book – and will probably also fill them with a desire to go and explore Japan in wintertime for themselves.”
Paper Tigers

“Give it to your older middle school child who loves fantasy, who loves things Japanese, who loves stories of travel. Read it yourself ... Go to Japan and find a donut shop.”
Charlotte's Library

“This book stands as a delight, mixing realism and fantasy in a believable fashion. There is a need for this title on our library's shelves.”
A Fuse #8 Production

“The happy reunions provide a satisfying conclusion to this entirely accessible, but agreeably exotic, ghost story.”
The Horn Book (Starred Review)

“Following the realistic and likable characters on their journey gives insight into the beauty of Japanese culture and tradition, and the fast-paced action as the children figure out the clues will appeal to many readers.”
