One Australian summer, two very different sixteen-year-old girls--Charlie, a talented but shy musician, and Rose, a confident student longing to escape her tiny town--are drawn into an unexpected friendship, as told in their alternating voices. *Author: Crowley, Cath *Publication Date: 2011/10/11 *Number of Pages: 265 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: 10-12 *Language: English *Depth: 0.75 *Width: 5.50 *Height: 8.25
From the Publisher:
A summer of friendship, romance, and songs in major chords. . . .

CHARLIE DUSKIN loves music, and she knows she's good at it. But she only sings when she's alone, on the moonlit porch or in the back room at Old Gus's Secondhand Record and CD Store. Charlie's mom and grandmother have both died, and this summer she's visiting her grandpa in the country, surrounded by ghosts and grieving family, and serving burgers to the local kids at the milk bar. She's got her iPod, her guitar, and all her recording equipment, but she wants more: A friend. A dad who notices her. The chance to show Dave Robbie that she's not entirely unspectacular.

ROSE BUTLER lives next door to Charlie's grandfather and spends her days watching cars pass on the freeway and hanging out with her troublemaker boyfriend. She loves Luke but can't wait to leave their small country town. And she's figured out a way: she's won a scholarship to a science school in the city, and now she has to convince her parents to let her go. This is where Charlie comes in. Charlie, who lives in the city, and whom Rose has ignored for years. Charlie, who just might be Rose's ticket out.

Told in alternating voices and filled with music, friendship, and romance, Charlie and Rose's "little wanting song" is about the kind of longing that begins as a heavy ache but ultimately makes us feel hopeful and wonderfully alive.

Annotation:
Set in rural Australia, this coming-of-age story features two very different girls struggling to find their way. Charlie lives in the city, but has coming to Rose's little town forever to visit her grandparents. Charlie is shy, and spends most of her time secretly song writing and singing. She longs to be friends with Rose, but Rose has always ignored her. Things are different this summer, as Rose is desperate to get out of town and take a science scholarship in the city. An unlikely friendship slowly unfolds, and the two find out they have more in common than they thought.
