Money can't buy you love, but sometimes you find one when you think you need the other. Georgia's fifteenth year starts in pursuit of money (for a trip to see her favourite band), and ends with an unexpected pay-off - first love. A funny and engaging novel written in a playful, inventive style.

My name is Georgia. I live in a town called Anywhere that has too many shopping malls and not enough skate parks. I like to think of myself as a brilliant creative person, but sometimes I just feel like a sad lonely girl with a big bum.

Things I Want

a magic bicycle

Two tickets to Natural Affinity

A Vietnamese blue silk eiderdown

To see a ghost

Eva to shift to another planet

A cyborg to clean my room

Purple tulips


Welcome to the world of Georgia, Philosopher Queen and list-maker extraordinaire, as she writes her way through a bumpy year that includes part-time jobs, tricky mother stuff and a boy with a delicious smile.
