Summary
  • In 1970s Australia, sixth-grader Allegra splits herself between her grandmothers and grieving father until the tragedy that created the rift between them puts her in the hospital
  • Australia, 1970s. Some days Allegra Elsom is torn between conflicting loyalties to her grandmothers, Matilde and Joy, and her father, Rick-- none of whom can stand to be in a room together since the decades-old tragedy that hit their family like a wrecking ball. Struggling to make peace in her family and navigate the social gauntlet at school , she also wonders what it means to "do the right thing" when everyone around her defines it differently? As the feminist movement reshapes her Sydney suburb, Allegra discovers the many ways women can support each other, and finds strength within herself to stand up to the people she loves. -- adapted from jacket
