About this book

Hearing Helen | Children's Fiction

Carolyn Morton

“The difference between you and your brother is that he’s not only playing for himself but his parents too. That is his greatest problem,” said Madame Pandora. “But you ... You are only playing for yourself. And that is your problem.”

Helen is desperate to escape from her run-down high school and to get into the Music Academy, but her piano teacher, Madame Pandora, will not hear of it. That’s not Helen’s only problem; life at home seems to revolve around her talented elder brother, her parents are too exhausted to notice her and the gorgeous Kean has only eyes for June, who is sickeningly perfect. When Helen finally gets the chance to make her dreams come true, she realises that not all opportunities are meant to be taken. Which opportunities should she grab, which should she leave and what will her decisions cost those for whom she cares the most? An uplifting tale of courage, determination and friendship. A novel for young adults. Also available in Afrikaans as Om Helena te hoor
