AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Charlie is fifteen. She's just moved to a new school and nothing is going right. She's hanging around with a girl she can't stand, her mother is a grief-stricken, wine-sodden mess, and she has no one to talk to except the pages of her diary. Everything seems hopeless. And then she meets Kate.

'Kate is sixteen, she's a singer, and she's wonderful. She's everything Charlie isn't, and she makes Charlie's life seem bearable. But when Kate announces she's leaving, Charlie is desperate. Desperate enough to do anything - anything - to get Kate to stay.'

Works about this Work

y Gender Dilemmas in Children's Fiction Kerry Mallan , Houndmills : Palgrave Macmillan , 2009 Z1939201 2009 single work criticism Gender Dilemmas in Children's Fiction examines how fictional texts – picture books, novels, and films – produced for children and young adults are responding to the tensions and dilemmas that arise from new gender relations and sexual differences. The book discusses a diverse range of international children's fiction published between 1990 and 2008. Some of the key dilemmas that emerge are around the texts' treatment of romance, beauty, cyberbodies, queer, and comedy.

— Appears in: Children's Literature Association Quarterly , Winter vol. 29 no. 4 2004; (p. 345-358)
Intrinsic to constraining and self-regulating discourses of motherhood is the child, and specifically, the expectations concerning mother-child relationships: these relationships have long been a subject of enquiry from different disciplinary perspectives. In this paper, Mallan focuses principally on the mother-daughter relationships, and to a lesser extent, the father-daughter-relationships in two young adult novels: Girl Walking Backwards by Bett Williams (1998) and Obsession by Julia Lawrinson (2001).
