    When 16-year-old Hungarian Elizabeta arrives in Australia with her family, she is hoping to escape the hopelessness of life as a refugee in post-war Germany. Her first stop is the Bonegilla Migrant Camp, a temporary home for thousands of new arrivals, all looking for work and a better life. Elizabeta becomes firm friends with the feisty Greek Vasiliki; quiet Italian Iliana; and the adventurous Frances, the daughter of the camp’s director. The Bonegilla girls rush together toward a life that seems full of promise, even as they cope with the legacy of war and ever-present sorrow.
