Summary
Since her sister died, seventy-five year-old Meg has been on her own. She doesn't mind, not really -- not with Atticus, her African grey parrot, to keep her company -- but after her house is broken into by a knife-wielding intruder, she decides it might be good to have some company after all... Andy Chan, second-year university student, has to give up his student flat and find a homeshare. Living with an elderly Australian woman is harder than he'd expected, though, and soon he's struggling with more than his studies
Summary
By the winner of the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Fiction, 2018. Since her sister died, Meg has been on her own. She doesn't mind, not really-not with Atticus, her African grey parrot, to keep her company-but after her house is broken into by a knife-wielding intruder, she decides it might be good to have some company after all. Andy's father has lost his job, and his parents' savings are barely enough to cover his tuition. If he wants to graduate, he'll have to give up his student flat and find a homeshare. Living with an elderly Australian woman is harder than he'd expected, though, and soon he's struggling with more than his studies.
