Synopsis

Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo

From the moment 15-year-old Amelia gets an after-school job at the local supermarket she is sunk, gone, lost, head-over-heels in love with Chris. Chris is the funny, charming, man-about- Woolies - but he's 21 and in his final year at uni. The six- year age gap may as well be a hundred.Chris and Amelia talk about everything from Second Wave Feminism to Great Expectations and Alien, but will he ever look at her in the way she wants him to?A story that's real and warm and just a little bit heartbreaking.First published as Good Oil.
