by Larissa Behrendt

When Sophie’s twin brother Simon gives in to peer pressure and breaks the law, she is desperate to help him. Can she combine her nan’s traditional knowledge with the lessons of modern Australian law, and point Simon in a better direction?

Maybe Nan was telling them that sisters—and brothers—should look after and protect each other? I want to do that for Simon, she thought. I hope he’ll always look after me, too.
