Dan is on a steep learning curve. It is not just that he is in his final year of school. When his parents go to Europe he moves in with his 22-year-old, bass-playing aunt Jacq and her friend Naomi. He should be concentrating on calculus and the fish-tank scene in Romeo and Juliet, but in a desperate bid to impress Naomi, Dan secretly starts memorising some more obscure information. Adapted from Nick Earls' award-winning novel, this is a gently comic tale of intimacy, ornithology and fresh pesto (2 male; 2 female).
