When Luisa's plans come crashing down around her she finds herself suspended without understanding how it all happened. Surely it can't be all her fault?

Rowena Mohr grew up in rural Queensland. While her brothers and sisters were out milking cows and driving tractors, Rowena stayed inside and read, or acted out her own stories in the bush surrounding the house. She successfully avoided becoming a writer for many years, working as an actor on TV shows such as Carson's Law and Neighbours. Eventually she went back to university and began writing stories for children and young adults inspired by her own remembered experience and how simultaneously awful and wonderful being a teenager really is. She now works as a theatrical agent and lives in Northcote, Melbourne. Book 1 in the Girlfriend series My Life and other Catastrophes, was her first novel for teenagers.
