PART OF SYDNEY’S SONG’S PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED
 TO THE BRAIN FOUNDATION
Synopsis (read more book descriptions on here):
Grounded in the suburban settings of Sydney and Boston where heartbreaks are juxtaposed with humour, SYDNEY’S SONG is a young girl’s courageous journey to adulthood and a love story.
A work of fiction based on true stories and real events, this novel with an Australian accent shows the world that living with disabilities does not prevent a person from attaining happiness.

 JACOB COATES : “A fantastic love story grounded  quite firmly in a suburban setting with real  characters.”

BRENDA FRANKLIN : “Touches more than just the surface”  
J. LENNI DORNER“Wonderful and compelling…The exploration of the dynamic of the broken family was deeply moving.”

UVI POZNANSKY – “It took me time to write this review because was too busy laughing and crying at every twist and turn of this story.
EXCERPTS:
 (1) From Sydney’s Song (read more excerpts here):
“To Pokolbin Prison, please,” requested a woman in a very weak, barely audible low voice I could well relate to. A vision came to me of a gaunt, sickly, very depressed lady.
I worked out her travel plan. She had to catch a bus, two trains, and a bus again, for a three-hour journey. Then she asked, “How much would it cost for a pensioner and a three-year old?”
Tears gathered in my eyes. A poor young mother with a young child trying to visit her worthless husband at Christmas!
And she was not alone. “To John Moroney Prison, please,” said a miserable mother.
“To Silverwater Correction Centre, please.” A sad girlfriend.
“To Long Bay Jail, please.” A wretched daughter.
Long-suffering souls requested travel plans for Lithgow Jail, Parklea Jail, Goulburn Jail – you name it.
Come to think of it, there was hardly a male caller wanting to visit a female prisoner. Either the men did not use public transport or they didn’t bother to visit. What did this tell you?
  
(2) From Storylane: Sydney’s Song Storyteller :
 I could tell you about euphoria.
It was walking in the clouds. It was happiness so engulfing, elation so joyous. It was sunshine in your soul, brightening every corner of your heart. It was a supreme delight when your love was smiling into your eyes. Or simply when he was saying “G’day,” trying to imitate your Australian accent.
I could tell you about love.
Love was squirming with fear that you might not look your best for a date. Worried to the bone when he was late (well, what could I say, he was catching CityRail—for God’s sake). And babbling like an idiot when the perfect Adonis showing up at your door robbed you of speech. Love was feeling cherished when he was cooking your dinner

Bio:

Ia Uaro–At 17, a teen magazine published Ia’s first fiction as a serial. Inundated by her fans’ letters, the publisher printed it as a book which subsequently ended up in high-school libraries. Ia used it to fund her university studies, during which time she was active in aero-modelling, martial arts, mountaineering, speleology… and studied petroleum seismology among her music-playing friends. After her graduation she worked with French, Norwegian and American geophysical companies.

 In Sydney since 1995, Ia now does several kinds of volunteer work for the community, assesses manuscripts, reviews books, and writes real-life socio-fiction.

Note: SYDNEY’S SONG is not a mainstream work. It is for readers of any genre who occasionally want something different. SYDNEY’S SONG has many multi-national characters and the story has so many layers. Ex visitors of Sydney will smile and smile remembering their times in Sydney and treasure it as a travel memento; many troubled souls will regard it as a survival guide and read it again and again for reassurance each time they want to commit suicide; lovers worldwide will pause and rethink their relationships; Sydneysiders will have and angry uproar  when they discover the inner working of public service from this insider’s tell-all; debates on several social issues will be ignited; the kids about to finish high school won’t know what will hit them; and at the same time one shelf of this book will be the humour category. But Sydney’s Song is FAR from confusing – only different readers will have different perception.
