bitter sweet coming of age

Written and narrated with honesty , humour and wonderful memories of growing up as men
It's set in Australia, in I think 60's . Focusing on 2 young men, learning what it was it was to be in each others shoes. Both from different worlds, both secretly longing to live each others lives, but only admitting it to themselves.
I loved this coming of age book, I love the pace, the characters were really enjoyable,and the story was totally relatable for me.
