Keep Your Hair On

By Elizabeth Vercoe

Keep Your Hair On! Is a novel about 16 year old Jess as she navigates her way through cancer, school and secrets.

Here is Jess's life so far: She is 16 years old. She's never wagged school. She's on a netball team. Her best friends are Sara and Charlotte. She has cancer. Last week she kissed a boy called Dylan. Today her hair is going down the plughole. If Dylan finds out he’ll probably drop her – or worse, feel sorry for her. Can she keep it secret?
