Christian College Geelong Senior Library: Lovers of literature

Alaska by Sue Saliba

mia’s heart made a sound that no one heard except for mia
late one night when she woke from dreams into darkness.
ethan was asleep beside her, and em was a forest away.
outside it was night and dark and alaska.
the sky was upside down.

When Mia follows her sister halfway across the world to Alaska, she discovers that love can be found in the most unexpected and beautiful of places. But can Mia find the courage to follow her heart in Alaska? And what if the one you love is not all that you wish them to be?

Alaska is the story of displacement, of the idea of home, of family relationships and a story about fighting for the  environment and making a stand for what we believe in.

A lyrical new novel from the winner of the 2009 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Young Adult Fiction with something in the world called love.
