Helen Chebatte is a writer, actor and drama teacher living in Sydney. Growing up Syrian-Australian, Helen Chebatte is no stranger to the challenges of fitting in while remaining true to her cultural heritage. Throughout her childhood Chebatte was fascinated by the eclectic mix of lives and languages existing in the same community. It is this fascination that inspired Bro. Passionate and driven, Chebatte has written a unique and compelling story that delves into what it means to be young, confused and inundated with widely disparate views from teachers, family and of course your mates about what is important in life. Shedding light on the perenial issues of schoolyard violence, discrimination and lost purpose felt by so many teens, Chebatte’s well-researched and hard-hitting novel is a disturbingly realistic take on high school life.
