Girl Saves Boy is the fresh and quirky debut novel from 16-year-old Melbourne blogger Steph Bowe.
Isn't it enough having your very own terminal disease, without your mother dying? Or your father dating your Art teacher?
No wonder Sacha Thomas ends up in the lake that Saturday eveningâ¦but the real question is: how does he end up in love with Jewel Valentine?
With the help of quirky teenage prodigies Little Al and True Grisham, Sacha and Jewel have a crazy adventure, with a little lobster emancipation along the way. But Sacha's running out of time, and Jewel has secrets of her own.
Funny and sad, silly and wise, Girl Saves Boy is a story of life, death, loveâ¦and garden gnomes.
