It's About Love

Publisher: Harper Collins Children's Books

Luke meets Leia (really!) on a film studies course. They must be made for other. But they're from different sides of town and this is real life, not the movies. Torn between Leia and his college life and home where big brother Marc has just been released from prison, Luke struggles to shake off his past and make a fresh start. Can he pursue his dreams or will real life get in the way?

This gripping and thought provoking story slowly unfolds to reveal credible characters and events. It feels real. Brilliantly told from Luke's point of view, through prose, film directions and observations from his notebook, this is a very satisfying and moving read.
