Cal's long, dull summer is about to change...Cal's long, dull summer is about to change... Cal would rather avoid reality. He hates school; his teachers are badgering him to decide on a career; his sister Jess has moved away from the Scottish island where they live, and the band they play in is falling apart. Not to mention both his parents embarking on embarrassing affairs - gross! Nothing seems to be going right and he'd rather just not bother. Then he meets Kerry, an Australian girl new to the island, and over the course of a long summer they begin to fall in love. When the summer draws to a close though, and Kerry finds out she's pregnant, it's time for Cal to face up to reality at last... A refreshingly honest - and often very funny - look at first love.Alison Prince was born in 1931 and won a scholarship to Slade School of Art, after which she trained to be a teacher and became Head of Art at a London school.
