When everything changes, can friendship survive? A powerful and authentic look at teen life from talented new author Emma Cameron.
Luke spends his days hanging out at the beach, working shifts at the local supermarket, and trying to stay out of trouble at school. His mate Bongo gets wasted, blocking out memories of the little brother social services took away and avoiding the stepdad who hits him. And Casey, the girl they both love, dreams of getting away and starting a new life in a place where she can be free. All of them are waiting for life to change. But when it does, will they be ready?
Emma Cameron lives on the South Coast of NSW. While raising two children, she works in school libraries where she enjoys being surrounded by books and children. In 2005 she rekindled her interest with writing stories and has completed Certificates in Creative Writing, Short Story Writing, Writing for Children and Editing. Her writing skills have been recognised in writing competitions for both short stories and novels, and her first publication was in anthologies, school resource kits and magazines. Emma enjoys interacting with others who have stories to tell and enjoys the opportunity to help others explore ways to improve their own writing skills. Cinnamon Rain was her first novel.
Emma Cameron’s Cinnamon Rain embodies the Trifecta of Awesome in my reading heart: a contemporary older YA, Novel in Verse, from Australia.
