School Review to Angela :)
am 11. Mai 2011
The novel 'Angela' by James Moloney, published 1998, is the third part of a trilogy about problems of Aboriginals in Australia. Angela and Gracey, the protagonists, went to the same High school and want to visit the same university. Angela is a confident and determined girl, who receives Gracey warmly, when she was new to the school. Gracey is an Aboriginal girl, who's good in sports and at school. Because of this she gets a scholarship to a sports university, but she wants to be with Angela in university. Gracey's mum died and her brother killed himself, too, one year before Gracey and Angela get their certificate on High school, what's really hard for Gracey. She don't want to spent her life with her aunt and little brother Dougy, who lives in Aboriginal village in a remote, and stays with Angela and her family. There she lives when Gracey and Angela go to the same university, too. At the university Gracey gets more and more contact to Aboriginal politics and fights for black's right. Angela and Gracey's friendship seems to drift apart more and more. Will it finally break, when Gracey decides to leave Angela and to live with their Aboriginal friends and relatives with her aunt and her brother. The author wants to show how difficult a life and friendship between different cultures could be and how Aboriginals still live in segregation in Australian. I like the book very much and it was to read very well. The theme is very timely, so you should think about it for your personal and you could empathize with the protagonists well.
We read the book in English class, but I would definitely recommend for the private book shelf. It is well worth reading.
