Girls Can Fly is an inspirational, young teen book from award-winning Aboriginal writers and artists, Sally Morgan and her daughter Ambelin Kwaymullina. Together they have written short, poignant sayings and provide wise advice, informed by their life experiences.
Mother and daughter have written a beautiful, thoughtful and inspiring book – a gift of positivity and encouragement for young girls and parents too.
An early draft of the manuscript was given to the participants of the Kimberley and Pilbara Girls program, and their feedback and suggestions were taken in. An acknowledgement, information about and photographs of the girls are featured at the back of the book.
