Books
Laura Rambotham, clever, precocious but naive, leaves her home in the country for boarding school in turn-of-the-century Melbourne. She wants to fit in, but her artistic spirit chafes against the stuffy confines and minds of the ladies school. This is the quintessential girl's coming-of-age novel, by one of Australia's finest writers.
