Third Degree by Tania Roxborogh
Sorry, this product is no longer available to order


IT IS A YEAR of firsts for 19-year-old Ruth. She has just left home, just started university and is just falling in love. The future hangs before her, glittering and bright. Yet when her new boyfriend Anton begins asking probing questions about her scars, she is hurtled into the past. Ruth is unable to stop the flood of memories. She recalls her stay in hospital as a ten-year-old, the feelings of abandonment, the borderland she occupied. And for Ruth, some tough questions finally insist on answers. Because no one's said. No one's remembered to explain this to me. Nor why we all got sick. Nor why a letter came that made Dad mad. Nor why it has to be me, sitting here...with these burns, while everyone else is running free and happy. In Third Degree, Tania Roxborogh has written a gripping and poignant novel.
