by Rosemarie Somaiah
Anna is worried. She and her family are different and out of sync with the world out there. Should she try to fit in with everybody else or trust her own instinct and judgement? What if she is wrong and life gets really messy in an already confusing world? Could she live with the consequences?
The Never Mind Girl and other stories by Rosemarie Somaiah is a collection of short stories which have their foundation in real-life situations from secondary schools in Singapore. Self esteem, peer pressure, loyalty to friends, the meaning of education, following rules and more... Rosemarie explores the struggles of tweens and teens trying to seek a meaningful life in society today.
