Editorial Reviews

For eleven-year-olds like Seymour, there is no better time than summer holiday. Unfortunately, little Seymour is a bit of a loner and stuck with a fussy guardian, so this summer is shaping up to be a real bore. A chance meeting with the enchanting teenager Angie, however, looks to turn everything around. Performed with an incredible energy by veteran actor, Dino Marnika, Came Back to Show You I Could Fly is the heartfelt story of two unlikely friends and the secret one of them harbors that could send everything spiraling out of control.

Publisher's Summary

It's the summer holidays and eleven-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. Angie, however, is not what she seems. Far from being extrovert and carefree, she too is lonely and trapped in her own unhappy world. Angie is using drugs.
