Lockie Leonard returns, nursing his wounded heart and feeling all alone in the world--until he meets Egg, a "head-banger," who's totally weird, yet very much like Lockie. When they take Egg's kayak down to the beach so Egg can get out on the water, they discover that the town's biggest--and most influential--employer is dumping industrial waste next to the town's beachfront. Stig Wemyss does an excellent job portraying Lockie--his emotional ups and downs, his enthusiasm for his task and frustration with others, his wonderful Australian accent and adolescent slang, and his emotional turbulence when he falls in love. The other characters in Lockie's life are equally well portrayed. His caring but busy mom, his teacher, his younger sister, and his dad--all have their own voices. But it is Lockie, with his adolescent intensity, who finds himself back on top at the end. W.L.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
