With Lots of Love from Georgia by Brigid Lowry
Told by Chelsea Bognuda
General Adult Audience
Welcome to the world of Georgia, Philosopher Queen and list-maker extraordinaire, as she writes her way through a bumpy year that includes part-time jobs, tricky mother stuff and a boy with a delicious smile.
Georgia’s fifteenth year of life starts out in the pursuit of money, so she can see her favourite band, and ends with an unexpected pay off – first love.
