Fiction, General fiction (Children's / Teenage)

A warm-hearted collection of stories about friendship between girls from different cultural backgrounds set in an Australian country town.

WHISPER is a collection of stories about a very special friendship: between an Aboriginal girl called Edie, and a non-Aboriginal girl, Maggie.

Edie lives with her grandmother, though she has been taught to call her 'Aunty Gwen'. There is no bitterness in Edie when she talks about her mother having left her: just a matter-of-fact 'Mum couldn t cope'. While world of the stolen generation and adults is in the background for the girls, it's friendship that's important.

Funny, sometimes sad, moving and uplifting, WHISPER, with its stories of Maggie, farm chores, mischief and the life of the imagination and of the spirit, will touch the hearts of all who read it.
