Someone Like Me
At first it looks like it’s going to be the same as every other year for Thomas Alexander St John Kennedy. At school he gets in trouble for fighting, and at home he likes to muck around with his dog. Life is pretty normal for Tas.
Until Enya moves into the farm next door. Enya, with the cool, calm voice and the mysterious family, brings with her more than Tas has bargained for. The violence of the world she thought she had left behind catches up with her, and changes Tas’s life for ever.
