Über diesen Titel


Trying to cope with the death of his beloved grandfather, teenage Marc goes to visit his grandmother, only to find her mysteriously missing and her house for sale.

From School Library Journal:

Marc Leadbeater, an eleventh-year student, must come to terms with the death of his beloved grandfather, who disappeared while they were swimming off the Australian coast five months earlier. Now on semester break, Marc visits his grandmother whom he not seen since his grandfather's death. When he arrives, he is shocked to find that his grandparents' house and everything in it is to be auctioned off the next day despite the fact that, according to his grandfather's wishes, Marc was to have inherited it all after his grandmother's death. Marc's inquiries only pose more problems and questions, while exposing some family secrets in the process. Southall misses the mark with this book. He uses a near poetic, stream-of-consciousness form of writing; metaphors and sentence fragments appear throughout. This style, along with the Australian English, makes the book difficult for American young adults to follow. The storyline races like random ideas through Marc's head. Conversations are interrupted by thoughts and vice versa. Marc's panic is conveyed nicely, but he never becomes a real person. The other characters are more like phantoms, just out of the sight of readers. Even the ending is a vague closure rather than a resolution of the conflicts involved. --Kenneth E.
