Description - Nona & Me by Clare Atkins

Rosie and Nona are sisters. Yapas. They are also best friends. It doesn't matter that Rosie is white and Nona is Aboriginal- their family connections tie them together for life. Born just five days apart in a remote corner of the Northern Territory, the girls are inseperable, until Nona moves away at the age of nine. By the time she returns, they're in Year 10 and things have changed. Rosie has lost interest in the community, preferring to hang out in the nearby mining town, where she goes to school with the glamorous Selena, and Selena's gorgeous older brother Nick. When a political announcement highlights divisions between the Aboriginal community and the mining town, Rosie is put in a difficult position- will she be forced to choose between her first love and her oldest friend? 'A fascinating book, beautifully told, with rich insight into a deeply Australian but little known community.' - Jackie French 'Rosie's story brims with the joy and pain and complexity of friendship and love at sixteen. I adored this smart, heartfelt book about family, kinship, country, and finding out what really matters.' - Fiona Wood 'Nona & Me is one of those wonderful books that takes you deeply into a rarely seen world and brings it vibrantly to life.' - Books+Publishing
