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.
