AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From CBCA shortlisted author, Penny Tangey, comes a moving, funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story.

'Stevie wants a pony or a horse more than anything. She dreams horses, draws horses and follows the girls at school who have horses hoping that one day she will have her own horse too.

'But money doesn’t grow on trees and Stevie’s mother is a single mum looking after two kids and holding down a job. Some dreams seem far away when you are vacuuming, hanging out washing and going to school. Stevie has to learn to straighten out the hard things herself. Her mother is worried about her sick brother and her Dad Ben is working up north leaving Stevie rudderless in this family going round in circles. Reading between the lines, Stevie suddenly has to learn a lot about growing up.

'A beautiful novel about the fine line between life and death.' (Publisher's blurb)
