Being Here

Author(s): Barry Jonsberg

TEEN

Sixteen-year-old Carly is interviewing Leah Cartwright for her local history project. But Leah resists, determined instead to tell her own story: that of a lonely child on an isolated farm, a girl whose only escape is into the world of books. And when Adam appears in the orchard Leah discovers a friend. A secret friend. Leah draws Carly in with the magic of story - to her present, her past, her secrets, and her unique friendship with Adam. Being Here is a beautifully told story about a girl whose rich imagination rescues her from a grim reality, and an unlikely boy who changes everything.
