Lockie Leonard, hot surf-rat, is in love. The human torpedo is barely settled into his new school, and already he's got a girl on his mind. And not just any girl: it has to be Vicki Streeton, the smartest, prettiest, richest girl in class. You don't have much of a chance when your dad's a cop, your mum's a frighteningly understanding parent, your brother wets the bed and then you fall in love at twelve-and-three-quarter years old.More
This YA story, by Booker Prize-nominated Australian novelist Tim Winton, stars a brilliant surfer named Lockie Leonard, who is almost 13 years old.
Voiced in a lighthearted, ingratiating tone by Stig Wemyss, Lockie Leonard: Human Torpedo finds its title character starting a new school and falling in love with Vicki, the prettiest and wealthiest girl in school. Their relationship develops before it eventually turns to heartbreak, and Lockie earns some valuable insight along the way.
Lockie’s voice is frank and funny, and in an Australian accent, Wemyss does justice to it in his tender, innocent-sounding portrayal.
