After her mother's death, Sky leaves her city life to move in with her aunt and uncle in a small Australian town. But the city isn't all that she leaves behind. Trying to fit in with her new friends means doing things she never dreamt she'd do. Just as she thinks everything is starting to feel normal, Sky stumbles on a case of animal cruelty that forces her to make some tough decisions. Will Sky risk everything to stand up for what she believes in?
Ondine is a lifelong animal advocate, and is passionate about promoting respect and compassion for all creatures. In 2004, she and her father, Brian Sherman AM, founded Voiceless; the organisation is now one of Australia's leading animal protection groups. And Ondine's social-media platform, Franimals, has become a popular community for animal-loving teens across the globe. Ondine's first book, The Miracle of Love, was published in 2013 and is an intimate account of her experiences as the mother of beautiful identical twin boys who have a rare genetic disorder. Ondine's journey with her boys has ultimately led to love, hope and acceptance. Ondine, who grew up in Sydney, now lives in Tel Aviv with her husband and three children. Her three mischievous street cats, two loyal dogs and a sweet ex-battery chicken all keep her extraordinarily entertained.
