Stolen Girl is a fictionalised account of the now universally known story of the Stolen Generation and tells of an Aboriginal girl taken from her family and sent to a children’s home. Each night she sings, and dreams of her mother and the life they once shared - of sitting on the verandah of their corrugated-iron home, cooking damper and hunting goanna.

But each morning she is woken by the bell to the harsh reality of the children’s home, until finally one day she puts into action her carefully crafted plan - unlocking the door and taking her first step back toward home. Stolen Girl gives young readers an insight into the life of a child taken away from everything they know into an alien world without love. It captures the depth of emotion that was felt by thousands of Australians during this dark chapter in the nation’s history.

WRITE A REVIEW

Not quite what I expected

2

Was hoping to use as a Novel for school purposes. Can be used, but for younger readers maybe 7 -9. Not much of an ending. Dissapointing - was waiting for something to happen, and it never happens.

Moving story

4

Insightful and moving story about an aboriginal girl stolen away from her mother. It is a picture book but considering the themes it raises is suitable for the 8-12 age range. It is a beautiful teaching resource too.
