Description - Lockie Leonard Human Torpedo by Tim Winton

Bestselling author, Tim Winton, delivers the iconic trio of books that are still the foremost definitive texts on contemporary Australian life for teenage boys.

Lockie Leonard, hot surf-rat, is in love. The human torpedo is barely settled into his new school, and already he's got a girl on his mind. And not just any girl- it has to be Vicki Streeton, the smartest, prettiest, richest girl in class. But what chance have you got when your dad's a cop, your mum's a frighteningly understanding parent, your brother wets the bed and the teachers take an instant dislike to you and then you fall in love at twelve-and-three-quarter years old? It can only mean trouble, worry, mega-embarrassment and some wild, wild times.

Buy Lockie Leonard Human Torpedo by Tim Winton from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
