This was a delightful and uplifting read that broke through themes of segregation, race and the class system in multicultural Australia. An unlikely friendship between three outcasts sees the establishment of a secret rooftop garden in a place that almost spelled the end for one of the friends.
With their hidden garden prepped and planted, a spontaneous road trip is planned to reunite and connect the friends with loved ones past and present. Evading the law and the responsibilities of home, the group face their fears and share their dreams on an epic adventure that restores hope and faith in the human race.
This tale has a whole lot of heart and a sweet, satisfying finale. I’d recommend this book for readers aged 12 years onwards.
