Description - Grace Beside Me by Sue McPherson

Written from teenager girl Fuzzy Mac's perspective, Grace Beside Me is a quirky, warmly rendered story of home and family life in a small town. The black&write! judges remarked on the authentic feel of the Indigenous home life of Fuzzy Mac and her grandparents - her guardians since the death of her mother. Awkward episodes of teen rivalry and romance sit happily alongside the mystery of Gran's visions and an encounter with a ghost. The story sits against a backdrop of amazing characters including the holocaust survivor who went to school with Einstein; the sleazy, once-good-looking Mayor; the little priest always rushing off to bury someone before the heat gets to them; the wife basher up the road; Lola's Forest, dedicated to Lola, a traditional Aboriginal woman who met Ned Kelly - and Nan and Pop. Grace Beside Me interweaves the mundane with the profound and the spiritual - it is full of wisdom and good advice (Fuzzy call's Nan `the queen of all knowing') on everything from how to to `sit a while' in the bush and connect with country to how to properly hang out the washing.
