FOR YOUNG ADULTS ... Tom, the hero of 'Drink The Air', lives in the coastal whale-watching town of Hervey Bay in Australia; Zooey lives further west, in the country town of Kingaroy. When separate tragedies bring them together, they are forced to leave their childhood lives behind in order to develop new understandings about how to cope with grief, love, friendship and, most importantly, family. Written with grace and wisdom, 'Drink The Air' is a verse novel which provides an affirmation of the need to give and accept love in order to better understand the truths of our lives.
