It's 1956 ... and Lina is working hard on the school newspaper. But mean Sarah Buttersworth isn't making it easy, and when Lina's best friend Mary gets distracted by her new television, things begin to fall apart. Meanwhile, at home, Lina starts to uncover some dark family secrets. Living in two such different worlds isn't easy, and when tragedy strikes, she makes a decision that causes her many lives to collide . . .

Follow Lina on her adventure in the second of four exciting stories about a passionate girl finding a place to belong.

    My granddaughter has now read all 27 titles in this series of Australian Girl and absolutely inhales them over and over again. We both enjoy reading them together as well and a great way to learn a bit of Australian history at the same time. Already have the next two in the series on order.
