MY MOTHER'S DAUGHTER
First published in the UK by Hutchinson Children's Books
It was only a haircut. Cealie had hardly expected to start World War Three. She was sick of the flowing golden curls her mother loved. Why shouldn't she be her own person for a change? Then there was the money. It wasn't as if she'd stolen it. She'd only borrowed it for a while...
Now Cealie was on the run. With her shorn hair and her tight jeans she looked just like a boy, which suited her fine. Even if she had to live a lie, it was worth it. She was never going back.
A powerful novel about rebellion and the search for independence by a new writer for young adults.
