Tough Stuff

Kirsty Murray
AUD $15.95

A collection of true stories about kids and courage. Some of them are extraordinary kids - high-born or super-intelligent or super-talented - and some are ordinary kids who do extraordinary things like saving a life or leading a crusade.

Ordinary kids doing extraordinary things. Extraordinary kids trying to live ordinary lives. Real kids doing it tough

From the wolf girls of India to a 14-year-old Olympic champion; from Iqbal Masih, the inspirational 12-year-old human rights activist, to the Dalai Lama; from Auschwitz to outback Australia, Tough Stuff is packed with true stories that show what kids are made of.

It's about children who have protested, rebelled, prayed, saved lives, earned a fortune, lost everything, become world-famous, or survived oppression and war.

It's about kids making a difference in the adult world. It's about kids and courage.

Tough Stuff is pacy, poignant, confronting. It speaks directly to children about things that matter.
