‘She was the most beautiful person he’d seen in his life….Anyone who wore satin and silver lace and black nail polish, anyone who had a little flying horse tattooed on one shoulder, could reach heights undreamed of by other people.’
It’s the summer holidays and eleven-year-old loner, Seymour, lodged with a fussy guardian an inner-city suburb, is bored and unhappy in his confined world. By chance he meets Angie – a beautiful, charismatic Angie. He is bewitched, and his world is opened as she takes him on unexpected holiday outings and shopping sprees. Angie, however, is not what she seems. Far from being extrovert and carefree, she too is lonely and trapped in her own unhappy world. Angie is using drugs….
I don’t know if there is a correct answer to any of these questions.

Does everything work out for the best?
In life we all go through times when we wish that something would just work out good for us, that life would just get a little easier. Although sometimes it feels life couldn’t get any worse, I believe everything happens for a reason, when it is meant to. I believe that in time everything will work out for the best.
Are we here for a reason?
I believe it is very easy to sometimes think and feel that there is no reason for us being here. However I also believe that everything happens for a reason, so if we are here it must be for something, and I am sure one day we will know what that reason is.
