Mia is the main character in the Iris Blobel’s latest release “More Beginnings”. Even with her busy “teenage” schedule she took some time to answer some questions.
Oh my. All my friends tell me that I have the weirdest family ever. Like EVER!
What was the scariest moment of your life?
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Really, as sad and pathetic as it sounds, I just wanted to be happy. I don’t remember much of my life in Sydney after mum had died, but I remember how little we had to eat and how often Sophie went to the bathroom to cry. So I just waited for the day I was able to be happy.
Cate Blanchett is great, but I s’pose is a bit old.
Life is good for the now teenaged Mia, even if she does have to deal with a dragon lady for a teacher. But then a man named Darren Schuster shows up in Hobart. Mia knows something is up when Sophie and Mark cut their weekend away short and rush home in the middle of the night. When Sophie won’t answer Mia’s questions, emotions run high, and Zach, the neighbour from across the road, confirms Darren’s identity to Mia. Disappointed, angry and feeling alone, Mia runs away.
Zach had been watching Mia for his friends while they took a much needed weekend away. When the late Clara Bellinger’s ex-husband, Darren, showed up, bringing Sophie and Mark home from their trip, Mia is filled with questions. But it’s Zach who gives Mia the answers she’s seeking. When she runs off, he must find her. He enlists the help of her teacher, Miss Peterson, and finds out that the ‘dragon’, is really more of a kitten. How will they find Mia and can they help her come to terms with the truth?
