Avril Stanton lives in the country and thrives on it. But she has never been in love - until she meets Nathaniel, the boy from the farm next door. Avril and Nathaniel's families have been feuding for two generations and aren't about to stop now. Will it be a Romeo-and-Juliet-style tragedy, or will a thunderstorm, a car accident and a couple of conniving grandmothers be able to solve her dilemma?

Scot wasn't born reading and writing; in fact he left school in year eleven to undertake an apprenticeship in gardening with the local council. He has worked as a waiter, masseur, delivery truck driver, home dad, counsellor and musician...Scot's first fiction for young readers, One Dead Seagull, was published after he attended a writing camp and writing conferences with John Marsden. His many books since include Burning Eddy, short-listed for a CBCA award and for the NSW Premier's literary award, and The Legend of Kevin the Plumber, a CBCA Notable Book...Scot lives with his wife and three children, two dogs and some chooks in the bush in Eastern Victoria. He spends half the year writing and half the year on the road talking to mostly young people about his books and the craft of writing.
