Australian teenager Dan Bancroft has a choice to make: go to Geneva with his parents for a year, or move into a house with his bass-playing aunt Jacq and her friend Naomi. He chooses Jacq's place, and his life will never be the same.

About the Author:

Nick Earls lives in Brisbane, Australia, where he writes for both children and adults. His previous Graphia book, 48 Shades of Brown, won Australia's Children's Book Council Book of the Year for Older Readers. It also received the following praise:

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

By eight-thirty it"s getting quite crowded.
Jacq, who at seven-thirty was pacing the empty verandahs and
smoking a lot, now has champagne in one hand, wine in the other and
several conversations going at once. Naomi is working on a spur-of-the-
moment punch in the kitchen. Burns is gripping a beer as though it"s a
mother"s hand, and looking even more out of place than me.
Phil Borthwick turns up in a tie and Burns gives me a look that
suggests he feels a little better about himself. Phil (and I admire this) seems
to have no idea that he"s the only person in a tie, and says, with some glee,
Great, dancing, when he works out what"s going on in the loungeroom, and
why the furniture is all outside.
At least he hasn"t tried anything silly with food. He"s brought a
carton of full-strength beer, and there will be plenty of people here who think
this more than makes up for the tie.
I don"t actually drink it myself, he says sheepishly to Jacq and
me. I"ve got an enzyme thing, so I can"t really touch alcohol. But I thought I"d
bring it for the party.
Thanks, Phil, Jacq says, already touching alcohol as though she
and it are at least close friends, and with a smile that I haven"t seen before. A
lazy, uncomplicated smile, a drinking smile, buckling under the weight of its
own bonhomie. But you"d have just the one, wouldn"t you? It"s a party.
