That Stubborn Seed of Hope

Author: Brian Falkner

A boy helps his sister disguise her birthmark on her first day of school.

A seventeen-year-old awakens to find himself trapped in an elderly body.

A teenage girl discovers her boyfriend has a life-threatening virus the day after they share their first kiss.

A high school student tries to communicate to his hospitalised brother who is in a vegetative state.

Brian Falkner serves up bite-sized tales of fear – fear of rejection, fear of dying, fear of disease, fear of the unknown, fear of exclusion, fear of being caught and fear of embarrassment –showing how that stubborn seed of hope hungers our darkest moments.
