Becoming Kirrali Lewis

Jane Harrison

Set within the explosive cultural shifts of the 1960s and 1980s, Becoming Kirrali Lewis chronicles the journey of a young Aboriginal teenager as she leaves her home town in rural Victoria to take on a law degree in Melbourne in 1985. Adopted at birth by a white family, Kirrali doesn’t question her cultural roots until a series of life-changing events force her to face up to her true identity.

Becoming Kirrali Lewis is the best novel on indigenous issues and perspectives I have read in a long time, and is a welcome addition to the literature for young people

- Mike Shuttleworth, Australian Book Review

Harrison engages her YA audience with her strong narrative voice.
