Clara in Washington

Author: Penny Tangey

Living in Washington D.C. is meant to be all politics, glamour and great conversations.

But what do you do when you don’t have the words to join in, or the knowledge to ride the subway, or you’re scared someone will mug you and a million other disasters could be just around the corner?

For Clara, joining her mother on a three-month stint in Washington is her end-of-school adventure and a chance to be someone else other than the studious geek she’s always been. Although, starting an adventure is hard to do when you won’t leave the house.

But Clara didn’t count on meeting Campbell and his anarchist group and she didn’t count on her new discoveries threatening to unravel all her plans. Will she still be the same after Washington?

From CBCA shortlisted author, Penny Tangey, comes a moving – and funny –  coming-of-age story set in Washington, D.C.
