Annotation

The story follows the fortunes of Anton, Christopher and their mother Pat who journeyed to a new land in the earlier novel, A Different Boy. The story is told from Christopher’s point of view as the family adjusts to a new life. When their mother Pat gets a job in a country town, Anton is happy but Christopher finds it hard to settle and wants to go home. Once again, Paul Jennings deftly explores themes of guilt and redemption while telling a compelling story, with humour and emotion. This story is best understood by reading the first title in the series, ‘A Different Boy’.
