AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A laugh-out-loud comedy about bad-hair days, a gorgeous boy, big bums, another gorgeous boy and oldies with attitude. Rosie Sinclair lives in the awful suburb of Prestwidge. She inadvertently becomes involved in a jewellery heist because she has the 'luck, to be driving her grandfather's black Mercedes'. The Mercedes is central to the story. It provides Rosie with a new job as a Black Taxi operator for elderly people - courtesy of her grandfather Paddy Larkin - and the reason for her current troubles with the thieves involved in the jewellery heist. Against this backdrop we see Rosie's 'normal' life unfold - school, friends, family and boys. Ages 13+' (Publication summary)
