Teenage runaway, Morag Bane, takes refuge in a squat in inner-city Brisbane. Here she meets the predatory Mearesey, the tragic Tash, and Brian, a cheeky, street-wise kid who seems so much older than his years.
A student of the violin in her other life, Morag decides to busk in the city streets to keep body and soul together. It is here that she will encounter the very best kinds of people . . . and the very worst. Morag must quickly learn that she will have to live up to the meaning of her name, merely to survive.
Then there’s the mysterious Finn, to whom Morag feels almost irresistibly drawn, and a house full of secrets. Set mainly in inner-city Brisbane, this story will appeal to music lovers, and to teenagers — and romantics of any age.
Award-winning novel, Morag Bane, was first published by Blake Publications and won the
2004 FAST BOOKS award for best Young Adult Fiction.
