This is an amazing book for a teenager. You can definitely relate to some of the problems/issue's Cooper is going through in the book. I'm 13 years old and I kind of totally relate to this. I absolutely love that its a true blue Aussie novel. That means you can relate to the heat waves and all of them things and It feels good because you have a connection with the author and the characters. I loved the characters in the book especially Cooper, he sounds like an average Aussie kid and I love it. ...more

What a fantastic book, I would love my son to read this when he's 13. I love hearing the Australian accent as I read - you definitely know it's an Oz book when they use the words "flamin', wotcha and Macca's"
