Four stories by best-selling author Sally Rippin in one spectacularly bound collection as part of the Our Australian Girl series.

It's 1956 . . . and Lina dreams of being a writer, but her strict Italian parents have other ideas. Now that she's won a scholarship to an expensive girls school, Lina has other troubles, too. But the Melbourne Olympic Games could be an opportunity for Lina to follow her dream of working on the school paper.

Journey with Lina across all four exciting stories about a passionate girl finding a place to belong.

Imaginative, kind and hard-working, Lina is an unforgettable Australian Girl.
