Review: No Number Nine, Novel By FJ Campball

No Number Nine is a novel with a flawed but strong female lead character, who readers will not help but to like.

A story about grief, family conflicts and first love, with a dramatic background of hockey and the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

No Number Nine is a work of fiction, based around the last few awkward teenage years of a young ex hockey player ‘Pip’ Mitchell.

After the death of her beloved sister and disastrous relationships, hoping for a new life Pip decides to make a fresh start. She embarks on a journey to Munich where she seamlessly slips into Au Pairing with the very wealthy ‘Von Feldstein’ family. As Pip discovers the true identities of her new employers, it stirs up a wealth of emotions, painful memories and new challenges.

Together they all set out on the sporting journey of a lifetime to the 2000 Sydney Olympics. This certainly will be a life changing journey, but most definitely not in the way Pip expected.

No Number Nine is a coming of age story about an 18 year old girl, It is well written and would appeal to the younger adult audience, readers around the same age of the main character Pip, could certainly get pulled in by the haphazard way she is navigating a difficult and sometimes painful time in her life. FJ Campbell writes so that you empathise with the characters involved and you begin to root for this unlikely heroine in every aspect of her journey. The writer takes you on this journey of experience with the characters, with all her ups and downs and once you start reading, it’s rollercoaster ride of twists and turns and some unexpected events, at times hard and difficult themes are covered but you cannot help but want to keep reading, it’s one of those novels that finishing the book is a must. This soul-searching book with its romance, humour, emotion and tension, all with an underlying hockey theme, is a quirky read that it’ readers may find hard to put down.
