sick bay by nova weetman
Two very different Grade 6 girls meet in their school sick bay.
Meg uses Sick Bay to hide from other kids. She’s struggling with changes at home, wears slippers to school and buries her head in books.
New girl Riley is a type 1 diabetic with an over-protective mother. She’d rather chat with her friends than go to Sick Bay, but sometimes she has no choice.
They think they’ve worked each other out, but what if they’ve got it all wrong?
On the brink of high school, Meg and Riley need a place where they can find the courage to be themselves.
