‘Breaking Through’ By Lisa Jane Hussey

Set in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, on a sunny spring day of ‘97, a year 12 student comes to learn of an outcome no teen should face. Solely placed in this situation, she has to make the decision of her life. Whichever way she chooses to turn, she knows it’s going to be a tough journey. This story takes you on a breathless adventure of deep despair, anguish and strength. As this young lady finds her way, breaking through and transforming, you too will be moved, wanting change.
