Mordialloc, Paperback / softback Book

Mordialloc Paperback / softback


Set in 1988, Mordialloc tells the story of 18-year-old Floyde McGuinness - a D grade student with a lack of direction.

Although quite aware that the world is changing around him, Floyde isn't completely sure if he is ready to change with it.

An over-achieving older brother and the lack of a stable, mature male role model do little to help his cause.

With year 11 in the rear view mirror, Floyde decides to throw a party for his graduating class.

Hard liquor, inexperience and a testosterone-fuelled peer group are seldom a good mix.

What seems funny at the time isn't always funny in the morning and a court case suddenly looms on the horizon.

The boys find themselves scrambling; all for one and one for all.

Well, maybe not this time. Raw, moving and sprinkled with light humour, Mordialloc (the book title is the name of a suburb of Melbourne) beautifully depicts the transition into manhood.

The story is a candid reminder that no matter who you are, or what you are, 'growing up ain't easy'.
