I loved how easy to read this book was. Siggy is a fabulous character even if he's a fourteen year old boy and I don't like teenagers at all (little brats) he is interesting, funny and endearing. The language is great, celebrating the dry Aussie sense of humour. This book has given me hope that I may one day be able to stomach romance again.
It does deal with some issues; bullying (particularly amongst the adults), relationships, discrimination. But they are just touched upon so that the romance remains the heart of the story. The author has done great working the issues in so that the responses seem natural because who cares if you're bald and have two mums? Well, hair is kind of amazing... anyway, this story has good morals.
I don't care how old you are, read this book!
