AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Lockie, who is about to turn fourteen, lives in a small coastal town in West Australia. He has just survived the worst year on record: his first year of high school, a new town, his first mad love affair - it's all behind him. But the world of weirdness hasn't finished with him yet. His family is in a shambles and then an old flame comes scorching back into his life. (Source: Trove)
