Keep Your Hair On! Is a novel about 16 year old Jess as she navigates her way through cancer, school and secrets.
Here is Jess’s life so far. She is 16 years old. She’s never wagged school. She’s on a netball team. Her best friends are Sara and Charlotte. She has cancer. Last week she kissed a boy called Dylan. Today her hair is going down the plughole.
If Dylan finds out he’ll probably drop her – or worse, feel sorry for her. Can she keep it a secret?
