‘Viola Vincent Reporting’

There was a loud crack as the handlebars snapped off. Caitlin watched as her mother, with a surprised look on her face, somersaulted through the air like some bizarre circus performer,

before landing with a dull thud on her back.

The accident that almost killed her mother seals Caitlin’s own destiny. And when she meets a kick-butt reporter and a ghost from the past, the drama really begins

Caitlin struggles to find her bearings in a world that has totally changed. Her mother, once her rock, has tuned out. Her grandfather is angry and doesn t want to know when Caitlin tries to tell him Mum s bike was dodgy.

In the end, it s the ghost of her famous great aunt, a pioneering journalist, who eventually steers Caitlin s destiny and gives her the courage to take a stand.
