Description - Our Australian Girl: Ruby And The Country Cousins (Book 2) by Penny Matthews

It's 1931 . . . and Ruby and her family have lost everything in the Great Depression. Leaving behind her dad, her school friends and everything she knows, Ruby must move to Kettle Farm to stay with her cousins. Life in the country is new and strange, and Ruby has never felt like such an outsider. Thankfully she has her much-loved dog, Baxter, for company - until he gets up to mischief, and everything goes horribly wrong . . .

Follow Ruby on her adventure in the second of four exciting stories about a happy-go-lucky girl in a time of great change.
