Dealing with her mum, the ways of her Nonna and preparing for exams is daunting enough, then real life starts to get in the way of her carefully-made plans. She has to deal with her father being in her life for the first time, falling in love and uncovering her family's secret background. And yet despite all the turmoil, this is the year Josie discovers that emancipation doesn't necessarily mean escaping from your past, and that sometimes, you need to face up to who you are in order to set yourself free. Co-founded by Jane and Glenn McGrath, the McGrath Foundation raises money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and to increase breast awareness in young women. The McGrath Foundation believes 150 of these specially trained nurses are needed to ensure that every family experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation. McGrath Breast Care Nurses offer a unique service to families who can self-refer to this free support. By purchasing this special edition you are helping the McGrath Foundation realise their goal.
