It's the winner!!!

Take three girls by Cath Crowly, Simmone Howell and Fiona Wood.



Kate, a boarder, making some risky choices to pursue the experimental music she loves. Clem, shrugging off her old swim-team persona, exploring her first relationship, and trying to keep her annoying twin, Iris, at arm's length. Ady, grappling with a chaotic family and wondering who her real friends are. When St Hilda's establishes a Year 10 Wellness Program in response to cyber-bullying, the three girls are thrown together and an unlikely friendship is sparked.
