The Scandalous Life of Sasha Torte (Harper Collins 2017)
‘I absolutely love Sasha Torte. I am as in love with her as I am in love with dark chocolate (that’s a lot). She is an amazing character. Even when she is on drugs she is adorable. Sasha is lovable through all her bipolar episodes. She is a very strong, determinate and … through everything that happens to her, she is very content with everything that happens to her and around her.’

‘Melbourne author Lesley Truffle gives the young female protagonists extraordinary adventures and social mobility. Her humour is droll, her tone arch, her satire pervasive … These narratives toy with and partially reject the courtship plot conventionally offered to female readers. They also ask whether the modern woman must behave and think like a man.’
