The Other Side of Summer

The Other Side of Summer

By  Emily Gale

This sweet and spellbinding story about family, friends and believing in yourself will warm your heart.

Summer is trying to recover from a tragedy, but it seems impossible when her family is falling apart around her. Having an extraordinary best friend like Mal helps a little, but Summer’s secret source of happiness is a link to the past: one very special guitar.

Now her dad’s plan to save them is turning Summer’s life upside down again. The next thing she knows, they’ve moved to the other side of the world.

In Australia, Summer makes an unlikely friend, who seems to be magically connected to her guitar. Is this for real? Has a mysterious boy been sent to help Summer? Or could it be the other way around?

'Summer Jackman is prickly, sad, funny - and absolutely loveable. This pitch-perfect story is full of hope and magic. Exquisite and unforgettable.' Fiona Wood, award-winning author of Wildlife
