Mia: Through My Eyes – Australian Disaster Zones
Dianne Wolfer, Lyn White (series editor)
Thirteen-year-old Mia lives on a bush block in the Pilbara, where she assists her mother’s work as a vet and equine therapist. Although she is used to the seasonal cyclones that threaten the West Australian coast, nothing can prepare her for the ferocity of Cyclone Veronica when she finds herself home alone and needing to protect their property and the animals she loves.
When her friend Nick arrives, pleading for help, and her favourite horse is injured, will Mia be able to withstand the greatest challenge of her life? As the storm intensifies, can she save her beloved animals?
A powerful story of one girl’s experience of 2019’s Cyclone Veronica in Western Australia.
