    The Book Thief by Marcus Zusack is a good text as it explores elements of discovery within person and also external discoveries... however if u r sensitive about topics of war and the holocaust i would not recommend it as it is about a girl who steals books from Nazi book burns to learn to read, also some people die during the book

    Thank you for you suggestion xx but I think I'm going more towards short stories and films as I'm short on time, thanks again though.

    Hey torismith2000,

    Here are a few different texts for different forms of media about Discovery (very short)

    Films:
    - The Butterfly Circus (can send notes)
    - Paperman
    - About Time (can send sample notes)

    Short Stories:
    - Only Ten (can send notes)
    - A Small Good Thing, Raymond Archer.
    - My Sister's Keeper (yes it's not a short story but I guess when you go into Anna becoming stronger and discovering she doesn't want to be a donor for the rest of her life, Jesse's emotional discovery that he feels isolated and neglected - when he is caught commiting arson, Jesse's father's confronting discovery of his son commiting crimes - he is a policeman).

    Poems: Yes majority of these are advanced texts but check with your teacher. I was able to re-use Glass Jar for my first task and it scored me 14/15.
    - Glass Jar
    - Barn Owl
    - Journey Into The Interior

    Also ask your teacher whether you can do a newspaper article as a related (I'm pretty sure you can be just be safe), if you really want send me a direct message so I can send you some notes on a Cara Delevingne article about discovery (I had to do it for an assessment task). : )

    All the best!
