AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jen's dad died in the war. Now her mum has a new friend Wal, who definitely doesn't match up in Jen's eyes to her handsome, war hero dad. Handsome is important. Jen's girlfriends give Wal a rating of 3 out of 10, maybe 4 with his shiny new car. When her mother announces that she is going to marry Wal, Jen is horrified. She tries her best to undermine him but before she can find a way to get this toad out of her house, Wal does something surprisingly heroic. And funny. Funny is important.' (ABC website)
