Book Launch: The Hidden Girl
Readings Kids — Woiworung Country, 315 Lygon St, Carlton VIC 3053
We are delighted to have Sarah Epstein launch The Hidden Girl by Louise Bassett.
This is the story of Melati Nelson who wins a scholarship to an elite Melbourne high school, and buries her bad girl past. But after the school unfairly punishes her, a defiant Mel steals a diary from the school counsellor’s office, only to discover a coded cry for help. The diary belongs to Devi, a young Indonesian girl who is being held by traffickers. Mel races against the clock, in a desperate journey that takes her from Melbourne to Java, to work out Devi’s identity and where she’s being held. Before long the pieces fall into place and Mel must put her own life on the line to save a girl she’s never met.
