Here is Jess's life so far: She is 16 years old. She's never wagged school. She's on a netball team. Her best friends are Sara and Charlotte. She has cancer. Last week she kissed a boy called Dylan. Today her hair is going down the plughole. If Dylan finds out he'll probably drop her - or worse, feel sorry for her. Can she keep it a secret?

Elizabeth Vercoe is a Melbourne-based writer and artist and mother of three young children. Her first novel, Keep Your Hair On!, is a fictional response to her experience of cancer. ''When I was little I dreamed of being all sorts of things. An air hostess, a truck driver, an actor, a circus clown, a journalist, a pilot, a tree planter, a park ranger. Then, when I was older - 25 years old - I got cancer.'' ''This was the beginning of an amazing journey. I saw some very dark and bleak times. I was frightened of living this way. But mostly I was terrified of dying.''When I was at the lowest and darkest point of my journey, I made a discovery; There is light even in darkness. Six simple words.
