The Things We Promise by J.C. Burke

Set in the 1990s this young adult novel reflects the time when HIV and AIDS were wreaking havoc in Australia and around the world. 16-year-old Gemma is plunged into this world, far from that of friends, the latest crush and what to wear to the formal.

It reflects the importance of being true to yourself and knowing what is of real value in your life, as relevant then as it is today.
