Book Description

How do you make one of the toughest decisions in life when you're as lonely as a distant planet?..Callisto May knows a lot about planets. She could name all the moons of Jupiter, or tell you the dimensions of the Great Red Spot, but she doesn't know much about love. She's so used to pleasing other people that she has lost track of how to be herself. And now there's no one close enough to help: her boyfriend is way out of reach; her mother is distracted by 'sad ladies'; and her dad - well, his motto is 'be prepared', which is exactly what Cally wasn't. But in her struggle, Cally finds courage enough to fight through the fog of secrecy and silence that's suffocating her family...Borrowed Light is an intensely honest, painful, funny book. Anna Fienberg writes with sensitivity and panache about the intricate relationships between family, friends and lovers...'Fizzing with ideas, wit and passion.' - Agnes Nieuwenhuizen..'A wonderful book. It reminds me why writers write and readers read.' - Morris Gleitzman
