really liked it

This is an interesting, apparently semi-autobiographical, novella. I particularly enjoyed it because it describes a great deal about life in Australia—fascinating to an American who has never had the pleasure of visiting the continent. The primary focus is on protests against fracking, but the story also touches on LGBT issues, Aboriginal issues, a missing bulldozer, gold digging, Girl Guides, homeschooling, nuns, and NaNoWriMo/self-publishing—all told through the perspective of a 14-year-old girl. It’s quite a ride! The story could benefit from professional editing, but it’s still touching and appears to be told from the heart. I was provided a copy of this story in order to do an honest review.
