A young adult edition of Turia Pitt's bestselling book Unmasked that is unflinchingly honest and completely inspirational.

Telling the story of Turia's life before and after the fire, this young readers' book unmasks the real Turia: funny, fierce, intelligent, flawed. With a new foreword from Turia, additional content and a new Q&A section, this edition covers topics such as confidence, goal-setting, family and friends and happiness that will resonate strongly with tweens and teens.

Unmasked reveals the woman behind the headlines, and in so doing, uncovers the grace, humour and inner-steel that gets Turia Pitt through every day – and which leaves the rest of us watching on in amazement.

About the Author

Turia Pitt

Turia Pitt is living proof that, with the right mindset, anything is possible. Caught in a grassfire while competing in a 100 km ultramarathon in 2011, Turia suffered full thickness burns to 65 per cent of her body. But surviving is the least of her achievements. One of Australia’s most admired and widely recognised people, Turia has gone on to become a bestselling author, a two-time Ironman and a humanitarian - raising well over a million dollars for not-for-profit Interplast. Through her online presence, books and online programs, Turia has inspired millions to live with more confidence, conquer their fears and chase down their wildest dreams.

Praise for Unmasked Young Adult Edition

“As difficult as the circumstances that Turia has faced, her advice for young readers is powerful and important, and because of her experience will echo through the emptiness of a self-centred culture.”

Carolyn Hull, ReadPlus

“An inspirational revelation of the triumph of will over adversity, with perceptive advice to teens in the Foreword, and helpful facts at the end.”

Chloe Mauger, Magpies magazine

“Turia outlines her philosophy for living life to the full, the lessons she has learnt and what is truly important. She encourages teenagers to have a similar mindset where their opinions of themselves are not dictated by social media and peer pressure. This is an optimistic, positive, feel-good book with great messages for the reader.”

Lynne Babbage, CBCA Reading Time

“The energy of Turia’s vibrant character shines through every page of this unflinchingly honest account of her journey and it is addictive reading.”

Jo Seymour, The Daily Telegraph
