The pressure builds for Kia, Georgie, Micki and Ace in the sequel to J.C. Burke's acclaimed novel STARFISH SISTERS

'Starfish who surf together stick together.'

It was Ace who wrote that in Kia, Georgie and Micki's blue booklets on the last day of camp. Yet it's Ace who's ended up ruining everything - ending the Starfish Sisters before they've even begun.

The Starfish Sisters should be happy that they're on track to make the Australian Junior Female Surfing Team. But will lies, secrets, fighting - and love - keep them apart?

J.C. Burke was born in Sydney in 1965, the fourth of five sisters. With writers for parents, she grew up in a world of noise, drama and books, but she decided to become a nurse after her mother lost a long battle with cancer. Since Burke started writing in 1999, she has published a number of acclaimed books for teenagers and young adults, including Children's Book Council Notable Books WHITE LIES and THE RED CARDIGAN, Aurealis Awards finalist NINE LETTERS LONG, THE STORY OF TOM BRENNAN, FAKING SWEET and STARFISH SISTERS. THE STORY OF TOM BRENNAN won the 2006 CBC Book of the Year - Older Readers and the 2006 Australian Family Therapists Award for Children's Literature. It has recently been added to the NSW HSC syllabus list. Jane lives on Sydney's Northern Beaches and is married with two children.
