Good girl Rosie and her new " bad boy" friend, Asher, who has dreadlocks and loves Jim Morrison, decide to hitchhike up the coast of Australia, where they take up with a hippie family. This novel is structured around quirky vignettes by a multitude of characters. The format does not translate well to the spoken word in this case. While Kate Hosking differentiates the characters well, the story's frequent and abrupt shifts in point of view make it extremely difficult to follow the plot. A sweet, romantic examination of teen angst is too broken up to be coherent. The biography of the author at the beginning of the story is the most listenable aspect of this production.
