Description - One Step by Andrew Daddo
Dylan is struggling. He's struggling with the acne that has declared war on his face; struggling with his pushy younger sister; with his nagging mum and his dad who never has time for him anymore; struggling with his old phone-me-down; and struggling with his constant preoccupation with girls, and what might happen if he manages to snag one. Struggling, but surviving. But when Dylan's creative writing piece is read out in class, it sets off a chain of events that sends him on a frantic roller coaster of emotions culminating in a revelation that could make or break his survival. Hilariously funny yet painfully poignant. This is a powerful and insightful story from a well-loved Australian writer.
