Sometimes you have to do the wrong thing to make things right .....

Mel has everything to lose - but how can she stand back when she knows something's not right?

Within the pages of a stolen diary, Melati discovers a coded cry for help - the diary belongs to Devi, an Indonesian teenager who is being held by traffickers.  Mel races across the island of Java and against the clock to work out Devi's identity and where she's being held.  Before long the pieces fall into place and Mel must put her own life on the line to save a girl she's never met.

A gripping and original novel that explores privilege, responsibility, and the difficult and dangerous choices we are sometimes forced to make. 
"An enthralling, fast-paced mystery that had me on the edge of my seat!"  Lisa Walker
Louise Bassett writes for young adults and grown-ups. The Hidden Girl is her debut novel and was shortlisted for the Ampersand Prize.
After university in Adelaide, she narrowly dodged a career as a lawyer and worked in international aid in Indonesia, Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Vietnam.  While living in Indonesia, she scaled volcanoes and worked with activists who were campaigning to end violence against women.  These experiences inspired The Hidden Girl.
Louise works in community justice, giving her a deep understanding of the impact of crime and vulnerability; issues she explores in her writing.
