AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From the moment 15-year-old Amelia begins work on the checkout at Woolworths she is sunk, gone, lost ... head-over-heels in love with Chris. Chris is the funny, charming man-about-Woolies, but he's 21, and the six-year difference in their ages may as well be 100. Chris and Amelia talk about everything from Second Wave Feminism to Great Expectations and Alien but will he ever look at her in the way she wants him to? And if he does, will it be everything she hopes?' (From the publisher's website.)
