Lockie Leonard, hot surf-rat, is in love. The human torpedo is barely settled into his new school, and already he's got a girl on his mind. And not just any girl: it has to be Vicki Streeton, the smartest, prettiest, richest girl in class. You don't have much of a chance when your dad's a cop, your mum's a frighteningly understanding parent, your brother wets the bed and then you fall in love at twelve-and-three-quarter years old.

    " Sadly I volunteered to read this book, being that my 13 year old daughter had to read and write a review of the first 29 pages read. I was absolutely disgusted when I read the first and second page of this book. When it refers to the poor people, it then goes on to mention Aboriginals, placing them in the same categorie. Being part aboriginal I certainly took offence to this. As much as I REALLY DID NOT want to continue reading on after this, I felt sick to my stomach when reading paragraphs referring to womens private parts, referring to the young ladies breast. Then to find out this book won "HELLO". One can only imagine who the judges where on the panel. As a parent I refuse to hand this book back to my 13 year old daughter to read. Any school library that allows this book to be placed on their shelf should damn well be ashamed. One - we need to STOP categorising the Aboriginal people in negative ways, second young girls shouldn't have to read comments made about their bodies in books such as this, that aim to be appropriate for young readers. I strongly feel that a specific age recommendation should be placed on books SUCH AS THIS ONE and especially STARTING with this one!! One VERY UNHAPPY PARENT pennys21@hotmail.com Penny Tatow "

    " I didn't like it because I found Lockie too much of a boring hormonal teenager. "

    " This book is WAY better than the TV show. Vicki is a super bitch to Lockie. And what Tim Winton says about women in this story is so true! "
