Generation Girls is what happened when a special group of teenage girls were given an opportunity to shine.
Award-winning Australian author, Tess Woods, mentored twelve teens from Ballajura Community College in 2017 through a creative writing programme.
None of the students came from privilege, most of them had English as a second language and all of them had already faced difficult challenges in their young lives.
Through the mentoring programme, the girls opened up about the issues facing them and other teens today, including social media, peer pressure, consent and how to be an engaged and valuable member of the wider community. The stories, poems, letters and advice to other teenagers that the girls wrote were collated and the result is this powerful, extraordinary anthology.
Generation Girls is the perfect gift to inspire the teenage girl in your life!
