Walter McVitty Books
"I don't know what I'm doing here. Well, I do really. It's because I was getting nowhere at the hospital. I have been sent here to learn to talk again. sent here because my mother can't stand my silent presence at home. Sent here because of my face, I suppose. I don't know."
So begins the absorbing diary of a 14 year-old girl who records her thoughts about boarding school life and the people around her. Little by little, she reveals the past events which have caused her to withdraw into herself. At times poignant, at other times wryly amusing, this remarkable novel, based on a true story, is written with unusual skill and insight into the teenage mind.
So Much to Tell You has won many prizes, including the 1988 Book of the Year Award, the Victorian State Premier's Award, the 1989 KOALA Award and the Christopher Medal (USA). It was selected by the American Library Association as a Best Book for Young Adults and has been translated into eight different languages.
