I'll Tell You MineBy Pip Harry
Kate Elliott is trying to assert herself particularly against her mother who is a politician. She wants to be an individual and for her that means goth. She doesn't have friends at the school she attends but has two outside of school.
She pushes the boundaries at home and at school and this gets her into trouble continuously until she does something so bad that she is sent to boarding school. She finds that boarding school is not as bad as she thought it would be and makes friends there, enough to open up about her life and be herself.
"Kate Elliott is full of anger and attitude. She has also done something bad - something so bad that her parents have kicked her out of home and sent her off to boarding school. Not really knowing for sure what had happened until the BIG REVEAL at the end kept me in suspense made me want to keep reading. I'll Tell You Mine is a fabulous book, beautifully and sensitively written about a girl who, despite her sassy manner and brash exterior, is desperately trying to work out how to fit in". Judy Bastian, Store Manager, Dymocks Adelaide.
"I really enjoyed this book because the characters were well shaped and realistic. I loved the way the author revealed the main character's secret and the secret itself. The main character was brilliant, emotional and passionate. It was a brilliant read". Evvie, 13.
"High quality young adult fiction can be enjoyed by adults as well and this one is excellent. It has been endorsed by Meline Marchetta, whose work I love, and with good reason. It kept me riveted with great characters and holding enough back to keep me turning the pages - into the wee hours of the night!" Annie TBBC
