2016 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards Winner - Children's Fiction

A young Aboriginal girl is taken from the north of Australia and sent to an institution in the distant south. There, she slowly makes a new life for herself and, in the face of tragedy, finds strength in new friendships.

Poignantly told from the child's perspective, Sister Heart affirms the power of family and kinship.

Industry Reviews
"Sister Heart gives readers the chance to share, vicariously, some of the experiences and feelings of the stolen generations." --Magpies
"A book for everyone: a book with the form and texture of a novel and the complexity and pace of a mystery not solved until the final pages. It is wonderfully entertaining." --New York Times Book Review

"A triumphant story that makes you glad it's been told." --Times on Sunday
"Sad and wise and funny . . . unbelievably and unexpectedly moving, Sally Morgan's love for her own spiritual and racial roots and her struggle to uncover them reveals a new Australia (the old) and a new way to embrace the elders and the young of all our peoples, wherever (and whoever) they might be. A book with heart." --Alice Walker, authorl, The Color Purple
"This beautiful verse novel from Sally Morgan can be used as a personal and approachable conversation-starter about the Stolen Generations for mature young readers . . . its message is powerful." --Books+Publishing
