The Colours of Madeleine Trilogy
The Ashbury / Brookfield Books

These books are set at two imaginary highschools in the north-west of Sydney: exclusive, private Ashbury High, and dangerous, public Brookfield. The books are all written in letters, notes and diary entries. They are loosely connected and some of the characters wander between books, but they are also ‘stand-alone’ books, and you don’t have to read them in order. They are: Feeling Sorry for Celia; Finding Cassie Crazy (The Year of Secret Assignments in the US); The Betrayal of Bindy Mackenzie (Becoming Bindy Mackenzie in the UK; and The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie in the US); and Dreaming of Amelia (The Ghosts of Ashbury High in the US).
