Adele Broadbent (born 17 April 1968) is a New Zealand children's author.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Work[edit | edit source]
Too Many Secrets (2010) was nominated in the 2011 New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards. The story was one of Broadbent's first novels for children and young adults. One reviewer found the main character, Rebecca, too selfish to be likeable at first, but then became engrossed in the mysteries Rebecca encounters in her new home in the country.
Just Jack (2011) deals with the eruption of Mount Tarawera as part of the plot. The story borrows from Broadbent's own family stories, told by her grandfather. New Zealand Books calls Broadbent's writing in Just Jack "fresh, convincing and distinctive." It was named a Storylines Notable Book in 2012, and a 2012 New Zealand Children's Book Awards Junior Fiction finalist.
