ABOUT
THE BOOK

Growing up is hard. You know this. And when your mother has X-ray eyes and dances like a wobbling bag of water? When your father’s idea of fun is to put all your money in a savings account and make you get up a 5am every Sunday morning? When Kenny, Percival Thorton High’s big show-off, is after Christina Parker – your Christina Parker? And when you have a shrimp of a little sister who is the bawlingst little six year old girl in the whole of Riverland? Then growing up is something you’re not sure you can manage at all. Who in their right mind could? Who? You?
All Over Again is an enchanting slice of boyhood. It is a charming story with a bold narrative style that pulls you in.
