Cracked / Clare StrahanBook
I'm pretty sure that by the time I finish high school, I'll be cracked into a pile of shards, beyond repair ... At fifteen, Clover is finding the going tougher than she expected. Her life is close to being derailed on the rocky terrain of family, friendship, first love, acts of defiance and a planet on the brink of environmental disaster. So when Keek breaks his promise to her, and school sucks, and her mother is impossible, and her beloved old dog is dying, and her dad is in the wind, and the girls at school are awful and the footy-boys are bullies and she's arrested for vandalism - well, what else can she be but a little bit broken? Can Clover pull herself together - or will she spiral further out of control?.. When life feels like it's fracturing, how do you find a way to feel whole?
