Sometimes you need a special friend to give you wings …

Mitch says stuff sucks. His life had been turned upside down since his dad started working FIFO at the mines. From a messy bedroom to a close footy match; an annoying little sister to incredible ANZAC projects; losing friends and losing face, Mitch deals with an explosion of feelings associated with bullying, fighting, suspension, family conflict and his first crush, all in the space of eight days. Will an encounter with a surprising new feathered friend and the reliability of old ones help Mitch get his mojo back? Steve Heron’s new Realistic fiction novel for 9 to 12 year olds.
