Butterflies, by Susanne Gervay.

Coping with severe burns, the hospital and doctors is not easy when all you want to do is be a teenage girl.

Katherine was severely burnt in an accident when she was two years old. Now 17, she lives with her mother and 22 year-old sister. Their father left the family when they were very young. Katherine still needs regular skin grafts.

This is a moving and well-written tale of emotional and physical damage and Katherine′s need to overcome her fears. It is a positive story of individual strength and family love. Whether a person is physically damaged or ′perfectly normal′ life still has to be lived and the story of Katherine and her friends relates to all teenagers.

That's Why I Wrote This Song, by Susanne Gervay.

'That's Why I Wrote This Song' is the journey of four sixteen-seventeen year old girls and their relationships with their fathers - the good, the bad and the PSYCHO - and how that impacts on their relationships with boys, each other and their lives.

The cover of 'That's Why I Wrote This Song' was complex to create - see my website to find out all the craziness that went into making it. www.sgervay.com

I love the cover of that and also 'Butterflies'.
