Trouble Started : A Young Writers' Anthology
Editor: Brigitte Joanne Rozario
Within these pages are 20 short stories about clashes within the family, with friends and neighbours and even internal conflict. There is mystery, death, and many arguments. The stories are relevant to tween and teen readers with tales of bullying, peer pressure, conformity, and living up to expectations. You would be hard-pressed to read all the stories and not find at least one that resonates with you.
‘Trouble Started : A Young Writers’ Anthology’ is penned by writers in Malaysia aged 11 to 15. It is the culmination of their seven-month participation in writer-editor-trainer Brigette Rozario’s Junior Writers Programme. This book showcases their talent and skill in weaving stories that tug at the heartstrings and compel the reader to keep turning the pages.
The royalties from the sale of this book will go to Thrive Well’s (formerly SOLS Health) community centres.
