- Peeling the Onion by Wendy Orr
Finding yourself in hospital, in a bed of shattered glass, is traumatic. Coming to terms with multiple fractures and probable long-term difficulties is something else again – slow, painful, full of obstacles and questions with no clear answers. Anna is used to being athletic, popular, ‘normal’. Now she feels the layers of her familiar self being peeled away: nothing is normal or easy. Can she pick up the pieces of her life? What part will Hayden and Luke play? And who, now, is Anna Duncan?
This was an Honour Book in the 1997 Children’s Book Council Awards Older Readers Section and is being studied in many secondary schools. It is a dramatic story that lends itself to film adaptation. Peeling the Onion has been translated into Danish, Italian, German and Dutch and is published in English in Australasia, the UK and North America.
