Themes: Family problems/ Grandmothers/ Isolation/ Love stories/ Survival

Tyler and Natalie, both at high school, couldn’t be from more different backgrounds but they both share a deep set sense of isolation from the people around them.  When their initial attraction turns to love and after Natalie has suffered a crippling accident, the pair try to escape from all authority and set off on a marathon road (and sea) journey. Their destination is Aio, a bach deep in the bush in New Zealand’s north island.
This is a well-told story and with such a theme it should have great appeal to teenage girls around 12 to 14.

The book was self published and is a good example of how well such ventures can turn out with quality binding, well set out pages and good clear fonts.

Year 8 up/ Age 12 up
