Orlando Schwerdt's portrayal of 12-year-old surf rat Lockie Leonard will leave listeners stoked for more in this coming-of-age story. The new kid in a remote Australian town, Lockie is smitten with the most popular girl in school. He can't believe his luck when she reciprocates his feelings and they start the first surf club. With superb pacing and expressiveness, Schwerdt infuses Lockie with social awkwardness during his first kiss with Vicki, nervousness at meeting her parents, embarrassment after a wet dream, horror when his mother talks about sex, pride in the midst of a barrel wave, insecurity about his changing body, and poignance after he wipes out with his first love. Hang loose, as there are two more titles in this award-winning series. S.D.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
