Balancing Act by Wendy Graham
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Fourteen-year-old Josie doesn t fit in and thinks of herself as a loser. She is suffering from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and her psychological problems alienate her from her school peers. She lives with her older, glamorous sister, Skye, and their dad, who is a ladies hairdresser. Mum has remarried and lives on a houseboat. During visits to the city to see her therapist, Josie becomes besotted with a city busker. She fantasizes about him and builds a dream, traveling into town to watch his performances at every opportunity. Josie s life begins to intertwine with that of Macka, another school outcast due to his profound stutter. While Josie is besotted with the busker, Macka is besotted with Josie. The two soon find their lives are following similar paths, which causes a series of misunderstandings and missed opportunities, but also helps each develop a sense of self worth.
