J.C. (Jane) Burke was born in Sydney in 1965, the fourth of five sisters. With writers for parents, she grew up in a world of noise, drama and books, but she decided to become a nurse after her mother lost a long battle with cancer. Since Burke started writing in 1999, she has published a number of acclaimed books for teenagers and young adults. Jane lives on Sydney's northern beaches and is married with two children.From AudioFile:
Georgie cannot decide if she wants to be a surfer or a soccer star; Kia wants her dad to notice her instead of Micki and has a secret that may destroy her; Ace is already a star but has trouble focusing amid boy trouble; and Micki is just glad to be away from her broken home. Four girls and three weeks at an elite surfing camp make for a story full of drama, jealousies, shared secrets, and new friendship. STARFISH SISTERS is a unique and touching story, brought to life by narrator Edwina Wren, whose easy Australian accent gives each character heart. A glossary would have been helpful for the unfamiliar surfer vocabulary, but Burke's world comes alive in Wren's bright voice. Many teens will be grateful for the end chapter with information about self-harming and how to protect oneself from its pervasive influence. R.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
