Editorial Reviews

David Metzenthen, the recipient of several book awards over his career, is one of Australia's leading writers for young people.

In his coming-of-age story, The Really Really High Diving Tower, poignantly narrated with tenderness by Francis Greenslade, two young boys struggle with a timeless childhood quandary. It’s a tale of conquering fear, not only of a really, really high diving tower, but of adolescence itself.

Will the boys’ courage waver on the platform as their peers look on, or will they take the plunge and emerge one step closer to young adulthood?

Publisher's Summary

Can Pete "Pod" Poldlewski and Morris "Shiny Boy" Diamond conquer the ten-meter diving tower, or are they doomed to sit on their towels forever?

It's a matter of life, death, love, and discount icy poles!
