Quick Overview

When Samantha Steadman starts high school at a boarding school in the Ukahlamba Drakensberg mountains, little does she know that she will soon be engaged in an ecological war for the survival of the endangered leatherback turtle. Their adventures range from dangerous night-time skirmishes with illegal fishermen to crazy antics for television cameras. Samantha and her friends - rich and sassy Jessie Delaney, and cabinet minister’s daughter Nomusa Gule – take the fight from the classroom to the open seas. Back at school, they have to deal with romances and heartbreaks, a joint musical production with the neighboring boys' school, encounters with an eccentric bunch of teachers, conflicts with parents and skirmishes with bitter rivals. Together they will need to find the strength to cope, and the hope that comes from knowing that individuals can make a difference.



A born and bred Joburger, Joanne Macgregor is a Counselling Psychologist in private practice, where she works primarily with victims of trauma and crime. She started her professional life as a high school English Teacher and has always been in love with words.
