AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Through a series of recollections, Where in the World tells the compelling story of Ari, an eleven-year-old boy with a gift for music.

'For such a young boy, Ari has already had to face some big issues in his life: emigrating from Germany to Australia with his mother, leaving behind his beloved grandfather, whom he and his mother have lived with since the death of Ari's father in a car accident; developing a relationship with his new stepfather, Jamie; and learning how to deal with his musical talent, the expectations it places on him, and what it will mean for his future. By remembering his early travels around Europe with his mother, and translating his memories of people and places into pieces of music, Ari grows to realise that life is composed of many kinds of journeys - figurative as well as literal - and accepting those journeys is part of finding your place in the world.

'With beautifully drawn characters, this is a gentle and moving book. ' (Publication summary)
