Teresa and her family survived the bombing of their home and went hungry
during the long siege of their island during the war. Life in peace
time is still hard. Her parents want a better life, and so apply to
migrate to Australia to find it.
But after the long voyage to
Sydney, there are more testing times ahead of Teresa as she tries to
learn Australian ways, avoid the bullies and do well at school. She is
not about to let anything stop her from making her family and her nanna
back in Malta proud of her.
