Win a signed copy of Misunderstood!


A few weeks ago Facebook pointed out to me that the Misunderstood page has over 900 likes, and suggested I celebrate this milestone. I couldn’t be bothered – hah! But then I thought, well, 1000 is a pretty nice round number, why don’t I celebrate that instead? And so I’ve decided to celebrate by mailing *one lucky winner* a signed copy of my book!

Here’s the deal: to enter the draw, comment on this post. That’s it!

Once the Misunderstood page on facebook hits 1,000 likes, I’ll use a randomiser to pick a winner from the list of comments. If that’s you, I’ll email you to arrange sending a personalised book to you (or someone you want to gift it to!)

You’ll be required to enter an email address in order to comment. Your email address will NOT be posted publicly, but I’ll be able to see it privately. That’s how I’ll contact you if you’re the winner.

It would also be great if you can share the Misunderstood page with your facebook friends. There’s an “invite friends” option on the right hand side, where you can send an invite (even through messenger) explaining to people what the page is and why you think they might be interested. For example:

I’m inviting you to like this page for the book “Misunderstood” which is about the experience of growing up overseas. I thought you might find it interesting.

Remember, the faster Misunderstood hits 1,000 likes on facebook, the faster there’ll be a winner to send a book to ;)

    • Oh nice! I hope it’s a fantastic experience for you! Misunderstood is definitely intended to be helpful to teachers – I know of a couple of international schools that have put it on their PD reading list for teachers. It has sections on different types of education overseas, and another on the kids of international school teachers, plus lots on the worldview of kids growing up overseas.


  1. Hi Tanya,
    I stumbled across this page through some friends and although I havenโ€™t read the book yet, I am moved by the excerpts written shared and am eager to, especially as I work with many migrants. Thank you for your insight and addressing such an important topic.

  2. Would love another copy to share with others! My current copy is highlighted throughout, so I don’t want to replace it, but hopefully someday I’ll be able to get that one signed, too! :)
