In Dear Pakistan Jaime Richards returns to Australia for senior high school after spending most of her life in Pakistan. Here, boys try to kiss her, men wear shorts and the girls speak slang she doesn't recognise. How will she ever know the right things to say or do or wear? This is meant to be her own culture, but it feels like a journey to a different planet.
