Read from April 11 to 12, 2010 — I own a copy, read count: 2

I had the vague feeling I'd read this before, and as I went through I became certain. It's a well-written book, as I find everything written by Margaret Mahy.

This is a coming-of-age book, in a way. The chief protagonist is between school and university and determined to experience life. He does! In the space of 24 hours he experiences a good portion of the things he imagined he wanted to experience over the coming 24 years (or such).

The characters he becomes involved with are a bit whacky, and intensely interesting. The adventure is fun and happy/sad.

A good book.
