Tiwi Girl, written by the students at Tiwi College (Tiwi Islands, NT) with Alison Lester, is about a young girl named Mia. Mia is a fictional girl who is much like the students, and the story emphasises the challenges and choices that the Tiwi girls are faced with. The beautiful, evocative watercolour paintings throughout the book portray the local environment, bringing the story to life. The book was developed in collaboration with HarperCollins in 2014 as part of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation s Create initiative. It was launched on Tiwi Island in May 2016.
