AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Do you remember finishing your last Year 12 exam and wondering what to do next? Do you remember waiting for your results and being stuck in limbo? Do you remember going to gigs, forming a band, getting bottles thrown at you by skinheads, making a bomb and getting arrested? Do you remember hitch-hiking to Mildura to see the love of your life, but ending up in a caravan park by yourself on New Year’s Eve?'

'You don’t? What? Did all this only happen to Dave O’Neil?'

'That’s what this book is about – the summer in which Dave finished school and waited ten weeks to find out whether he’d make it into uni or have to get that trade his dad kept banging on about. The Summer of ’82 is a hilarious and heartfelt journey of a boy becoming a man in suburban Australia.' (Source: Publisher's website)
