When looking for related texts for the theme of Belonging don’t forget to check out some new authors. One book I recently read was “Raw Blue” by Kirsty Eagar. In this book Carly is 19 and a uni drop out – she doesn’t feel that she belongs to a normal life as she was traumatised by an event that happened to her the year before at schoolies week. She does though feel that she ‘belongs’ to the surfing scene. Read more about “Raw Blue” at Kirsty’s web site http://www.kirstyeagar.com/
