Description-
  • Winner of the 1990 Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award (Older Readers). It's the summer holidays and 11-year-old loner, Seymour, lodged with a fussy guardian in an inner-city suburb, is bored and unhappy in his confined world. By chance he meets Angie - beautiful, charismatic Angie. He is bewitched, and his world is opened as she takes him on unexpected holiday outings and shopping sprees.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Eleven-year-old Seymour, neglected by divorcing parents, intimidated by the world at large, forms an unlikely friendship with 20-year-old Angie, a charming drug addict on the skids. Angie's scattered but good-hearted attention nudges him slowly out of his shell. Because of this, he won't give up on her, even when her lies are exposed, and she lashes out to push him away. These two lost souls cross paths for one intense summer month of growth and healing. Dino Marnika's sensitive reading brings these intriguing characters to life. His ability with regional accents adds authenticity and flavor. Readers used to swift action might find the beginning slow, but the depth and honesty of this Australian award winner guarantee a rewarding experience. E.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
