It's 1983 . . . and Marly is just trying to fit in at Sunshine Primary School. But being a refugee from Vietnam doesn't make things easy, and when Marly's cousins come to stay and end up at the same school, her friends make fun of them. How can Marly stay loyal to her cousins and keep her school friends as well?

Meet Marly and join in her adventure in the first of four exciting stories about a daring girl torn between two worlds.

Alice Pung is a writer, editor, teacher and lawyer based in Melbourne. Born a month after her Chinese parents fled from Cambodia to Australia as asylum seekers from Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge Regime, Alice has used shared family's experiences to write stories that captivate all readers.

She has won numerous awards including the 2007 Newcomer of the Year Award in the Australia Book Industry Awards for her first book Unpolished Gem. Her next book Her Father's Daughter won the Western Australia Premier's Book Award for Non Fiction, and it was also shortlisted for the Premier's Literary Awards in Victoria and New South Wales, and nominated also in the Queensland Literary Awards.

Her writing has appeared in many notable publications including the Monthly, the Age, Meanjin, The Best Australian Stories and The Best Australian Essays. Alice edited Growing Up Asian in Australia, a collection of personal accounts, essays, short stories and poetry which is currently a set text for the VCE English context on Identity and Belonging.
