Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier


Reviewed by Melissa Rader (Library Staff)

This gritty historical gangster romp is definitely like nothing I’ve ever read before. Razorhurst follows Kelpie, an orphaned homeless girl on the streets of Sydney in 1932. Kelpie can see ghosts and winds up caught in the crosshairs of rival territory gangs when she meets Dymphna, a classy dame known as the “Angel of Death.” The vivid setting really made this story and even though the plot dragged in parts, I would still highly recommend giving Razorhurst a try if you are in the mood for something truly unique and a little dangerous.
