Summary
Jono is athletic, musical and self-assured. He sees himself as 100% Australian, despite his Vietnamese heritage. He's had girls keen on him before and haven't been interested ... but Anahita is different. He doesn't know that she lives in a three by three metre room with her mother, and shares a bunk bed with her younger brother. He doesn't know that she has to participate in activities to earn credits to buy a phone card to call him for half an hour. Or that she's allocated an hour of internet time a day, with guards patrolling behind her to make sure she's only doing homework. And she doesn't want to tell him either. She wants to try to maintain the feeling of having something special, something secret, between them. It's one area of her life in which she can pretend to be relatively normal ... but for how long?
Summary
Ana, an Iranian asylum seeker only allowed out of detention to attend school, meets Jono, whose home life is spiraling out of control, and the two strike up an unlikely relationship despite barbed-wire fences and cultural differences between them
