Choose your own destiny and step into the shoes of an Irish girl making her way from London to Australia in 1825 - the first book in an exciting interactive adventure series.

To find freedom, you must leave behind everything you've ever known.

It is 1825. You and Ma have survived on the streets of London ever since the soldiers took Da away and you fled Ireland. Now, with Ma gone too, you find yourself facing life-and-death choices at every turn.

Can you carry a secret treasure across the ocean and finally be reunited with Da? You'll be asked to betray your friends, survive storms at sea and attacks by bushrangers, and trust thieves.

At every turn, the choice is yours. How far will you go for freedom?

About the Author

Emily Conolan is a writer and teacher, who is also known for her humanitarian work. For her role in establishing a volunteer support network for asylum seekers in Tasmania, she has been awarded Tasmanian of the Year, Hobart Citizen of the Year, and the Tasmanian Human Rights Award. The stories of courage and resilience she has heard in the course of her work with refugees, combined with tales from her own family history, inspired her to write the Freedom Finders series. Emily has never had smallpox or helped a horse give birth, but in the early 1800s, her family was bush-ranged and did help smuggle an Irish political prisoner out of Van Diemen's Land.



Hi! My name is Bridget and I am 10 years old. I loved this book because it was so interesting and not what I expected. It was so gripping, i even snuck my own copy into school, even though my teacher is already reading it! I think that Emily Conolan has done a fantastic job on "Break Your Chains", and i can't wait to see her next pieces!





My 10yo daughter loves these "choose your own adventure" books. They are also historically accurate, and don't hold back on the real story about Australia's past.
