Description

Auckland in the 1950s: a time of rock'n'roll, milk bars, bodgies and widgies and teenage rebellion. The Auckland Harbour Bridge is under construction. Simon likes watching the bridge being built, and talking to his uncle and his mates about what's happening on site. Meanwhile, Simon's best friend Marty is obsessed with the Space Race and younger sister Jo can't stop worrying about the fate of the dogs and monkeys that are the world's first space travellers. Everyone says that life on the North Shore will change once the bridge is finished ...but what does that mean for Simon and his family?
