Outlandish Voices is very excited to bring you the first in an occasional series of stories by young Wollongong-area writers. Andrea Fernando, the author of "Whatever It Takes," is a student at Smith's Hill High School in Wollongong. She brings you a terrific story of obsession, ambition, history, and hope.
The story came to our attention here at Outlandish Voices for its truly imaginative characterization and the polish of its writing. We think you'll be as impressed as we are with this story by an up-and-coming young writer with a lot to say.
