That Young Rebel, Ethel Turner , single work novel

'Ethel Turner's "That Young Rebel" is the serial written for the final year of the Parthenon, the journal she wrote with her sister, Lilian, from 1889 to 1892. Her rebel exemplifies those qualities of resilience and a healthy disregard for authority that Turner - later author of the famous children's novel Seven Little Australians (1894) - clearly admires and finds appropriate as Australia itself moves towards independent nationhood.'
