Secrets & Lies by Brigitte Rozario
Title: Secrets & Lies
Publisher: Brigitte Joanne Rozario
Editor: Brigitte Rozario
Synopsis: This book features 20 short stories about friendships and families on the brink of breaking, and people staying true to themselves. Like typical teens and young adults, the characters try to make sense of the world and be themselves while pushing the boundaries and freeing themselves from the shackles of expectations and conformity. The stories include a lying mother, a killer in the family, a friend who has a serious illness, and a son hiding the truth of his gender. Secrets & Lies: A Young Writers' Anthology is penned by writers in Malaysia aged 12 to 14. It is the culmination of their seven-month participation in writer-editor-trainer Brigitte Rozario's Junior Writers Programme.
