As every teenager learns too well, just when you think you have life all figured out, it smacks you in the face once more. For "surf rat" Lockie Leonard, almost 14 and living in "the most remote town on Earth", the peace he found by the end of his first year in high school is shredded by his brother and baby sister acting crazy, his dad arresting farm animals, his mom unable to stop her tears …and then there’s the ex-girlfriend. Well connected to the range of teen emotions, Stig Wemyss performs Australian "Living Treasure" Tim Winton’s young adult novel of what you can learn about yourself when everyone else seems determined to keep your world turning upside down.
