AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tess used to believe her father would always be there. But that was before he got caught up with his rising political career. Tess is different now, too. Shuttling between two homes and two mothers, she's dropped out of championship swimming and almost out of school as well. The only thing that interests her is leading a group of young environmental activists, the 'Green Guerillas'. And even though Tess never goes near the water now, she still has nightmares about drowning ... 'The warm characterizations save all the cliches surrounding broken families, this engrossing Australian tale has a refreshing view of children struggling with the fallout from divorce. Tess's growing awareness of her dad's imperfections and his realization of his own shortcomings make the ending not only happy, but believable.' (Libraries Australia record).
