'A warm comedy about genetics, love and the meaning of life.
'Bella woke with a strangled feeling of panic. She had been trapped in the glass specimen jar again. She fumbled for the switch on her reading light and told her racing heart to slow down. It was only a stupid dream. Bella breathed deeply and tried to relax her frowning face muscles and tense shoulders. That thylacine pup seemed to be haunting her.
'What begins with a visit to an exhibition on Australia's most famous extinct animal turns into something much more personal for Bella Brown - a search for identity. Does Bella's absent biological father have more influence on her life than her very present stepfather? Why would her best have a crush on one identical twin and not the other? And is there a right time to die? Who would have guessed a baby thylacine in a preserving jar could prompt so many big questions. . . The tiger project could end up giving Bella a whole new perspective on love, genes and mad dogs with rabies.'
