Blog Tour: Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier

Blog Tour: Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier

We’re super excited to have Larbalestier on our blog today, and not at all because she threatened us with a razor and said she was going to cut us. (Please help us). You may have seen Larbalestier’s awesome activism on Twitter, or read one of her previous books like Liar or Team Human. Today we’ll be talking about her new book, Razorhurst. Set in 1930’s Sydney Australia amongst the bloody gang wars. With limited guns available, gang members turn their prowess for violence towards the razor blades. It’s a bloody, beautiful novel.
