Girl X Recreated by Leanne Rowe
Book Descriptiongirl X recreated' is the intriguing and beautifully illustrated diary of an imaginary Year 12 student. She uses it to capture her strong feelings about commitment, friendship, family relationships, sex, depression, drugs, grief, racism, terrorism, war and the future in uncertain times. And it expresses the creativity, courage, and at times, despair of the young people who created this extraordinary character. They are sending a powerful message of hope to young people like themselves. Radio presenter Norman Swan says in his foreword to the book: "Projects like 'girl X recreated' deliver, are worth more than all the self-esteem programs in the country put together. It provides a tangible way we can make our lives happier." While the world is in turmoil, communities must find new ways to promote hope. girl X tells us how.
