Review: The Truth About Peacock Blue

The Truth About Peacock Blue (Allen & Unwin, 2015) by Rosanne Hawke is a heart-wrenching account of a teenage girl's struggle against religious persecution in Pakistan. Imprisoned under Pakistan's blasphemy laws, fourteen-year-old Aster's plight is significant and timely, providing insight into why people may be forced to abandon their lives in the hope of enjoying the freedoms that we as Australians take for granted. A must read. See my full review, and more, over at Buzz Word Books.
