Girl Who Cried Wolf, Angela Betzien , 2008 single work drama children's young adult

'The most popular girl at school has disappeared prompting a lockdown in the suburb of Pleasant Lakes. Fear and hysteria grips the community. But all is not what it seems as two girls form an unlikely connection and collude in the construction of a gigantic lie.

Inspired by media reports involving the story of a girl who faked her own abduction, Girl Who Cried Wolf examines the cult of celebrity and the machinations of the school playground hierarchy. Set against the backdrop of a local shopping mall's Idol competition, an awkward 11 year old girl suffers the pain of growing up differently in a claustrophobic new housing estate in the outer suburban sprawl, anywhere and everywhere in contemporary Australia.'
