Ia Uaroabout this book: Grounded in the suburban settings of Sydney and Boston where heartbreaks are juxtaposed with humour, SYDNEY'S SONG is a young girl's courageous journey to adulthood and a love story. A work of fiction based on true stories and real events, this novel with an Australian accent also shows the world that living with disabilities does not prevent a person from attaining happiness.
Tragically funny, heartwarming and inspiring, this book primarily aims to entertain. Written for 15 to 99 year olds, SYDNEY'S SONG will delight readers of any genre who occasionally want something different in their bookshelves.
The heroine is Sydney of Sydney, an undefeatable girl. She meets Pete, the only American among a group of British backpackers. So, what do young adult travelers do in Sydney? How exactly do they live in this vibrant city? A vivid portrayal of the city and the people of Sydney, this novel contains intriguing details you will not find elsewhere.
And who is Pete, the gorgeous guy with many secrets? Pete is the reason why this book is written. He is real. And he's somebody that all readers so far have fallen in love with.
