I haven't quite got to the end of this text. I absolutely loved the beginning and it had me hooked straight away. Then we get into the flashback story of Jennifer Jones and it is intriguing how as a reader we feel such a strong sense of empathy for her, when ordinarily or in 'real life' we would judge her much more harshly. I wonder if that's because her story isn't a real representation of real life or if we really should be reflecting on the judgements we make through media presentation of events. Either way - a great read for probably year 9 and above. Let me know what you think...
