ALEJANDRA

by Maria Bonacci

Alejandra initiates a plan to stop a corrupt mining magnate called Mayor George mining coal seam gas after her father is sent to the coal mines. She enlists support from her pet rat, her friend Jamie, a greenie activist and her mother’s spirit. Alejandra overcomes not only the difficulties beset by her monstrous step mother and step sister but also those presented by the Mayor’s stooges in his employ. She rallies the community and despite the revelation of Jamie’s true identity her resolve does not waver. With time running out, her plan unravelling, Alejandra acts quickly using her wits to trick the Mayor and finally ends his rule and the destructive practices of coal seam gas mining much to her delight and that of the whole community.
