AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sarah hadn't wanted to come to Australia. She'd been perfectly happy with things as they were in Singapore, where school was for learning, and "being cool" was a non-issue. Now Dad was trying his best to make her into a "fair dinkum" Aussie while Mum was determined to hang on to all the old Chinese traditions. As if the kids at Sarah's new school didn't have enough to give her a hard time about. And that wasn't all ... When Sarah first started hearing voices she knew that she must be losing the plot. Who was Pei? What did she have to do with the first Chinese arrivals in Adelaide in 1847? It all began with the Festival of the Hungry Ghosts ...'. (Source: author's website.)
