AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rosie is restless. She wants a nose-ring and even more she wants to do something, be someone, be someone else. Asher, the new boy in her class, befriends her. He has dreadlocks, a guitar and a bad case of the gypsy blues. Will Rosie's life liven up?' Source: Libraries Australia (Sighted 09/01/2008).
