yLiving with LeanneMargaret Clark,
Milsons Point:Random House,1994Z5221551994single work novel young adult humour Sam Studley's a bit older and wiser than when you met him in 'Hold my hand - or else!'. But it's a pity he can't say the same for his 15 year old sister Leanne. No one seems to know where she is. Some kids are saying she's got AIDS and some are saying she's been abducted. Some are saying she's on the run to Kings Cross, some are saying she's a speed freak and gone to a drug rehab centre, and some that she's hiding out at home with chickenpox. But if living with Leanne sounds full on, you should hear about living without her!
