Author – Vikki Wakefield
Age – 14+
Vikki Wakefield is an amazing new Australian author for teens. All I ever Wanted is about a girl who is determined not to end up like her overweight, overspending mother, her tattooed and boy crazy best friend or her two brothers – both in prison for drug offences.
This would make a fantastic school character study as the reader gets to know the main character so well. And as the story progresses, the main character learns about herself and her family too. Maybe all is not what it seems?
