Goggle Eyes July 14 2009
By Late Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book opens with a dramatic scene. A girl charges into a classroom tears streaming down her face. She is uncharacteristically rude to her teacher and then emotionally runs out of her classroom. The main protagonist Kitty is sent after her and not knowing why she is chosen she reluctant follows the other girl to the locker room. Its from there that the scene is set for Kitty to tell her story to her upset classmate. It transpires that the other girl Helly, has a divorced mother with a new man in her life that she hates. Kitty then realises why she was chosen and then proceeds to tell her story of " Goggle Eyes". The novel is a funny subtle exploration of the pain of adjusting to divorce and then having the new balance of mother and children upset with a new and possibly permanent man in the family. It is about the gradual maturity of the main character learning to live with and reluctantly like a man who is the exact opposite of her, temperamentally, politically and in many other ways and realising that such a situation can work.

It is a charming, sometimes hilarious story with well developed characters and some political content as well. Can be enjoyed by adults as well as teenagers.
