At the end of her Year 10, Julia Kelly, gifted music scholarship student at Killian Grammar School, Melbourne, is badly burned in a car crash. Severely traumatised by shocking burns and the loss of a rising career as a pianist, Julia attempts to cope by sending the scarred Julia to an imaginary place in the Simpson Desert, while retaining as herself, the undamaged 'Kate'.

It was terribly hard to get into this book, but like On the Jellicoe Road it should be read at least twice to get the full effect of it. The characters were amazing. Being musical and a fan of maths/physics, I appreciated and related to both Julia and Danica, and being a student I understood the pressures of final year exams. If you start it, stick with it because it will be worth it in the end.
