'There are worse things than school.'
Luke sleepwalks through his days wagging school, swimming at the reservoir and eating takeaway pizza.
That is until Charlotte shows up.
Rumour is she got expelled from her city school and her family moved to the Blue Mountains for a fresh start.
But when Luke's invited to her house, he discovers there's a lot more going on than meets the eye.
