The 10pm Question

In the 10pm Question, twelve year old Frankie has some persistent worries that nag him, especially around the time of 10pm.

His mother listens seriously and patiently.

Will there be an earthquake some time in the near future? Will bird flu strike the neighbourhood? Are the smoke alarm batteries flat?

Frankie tries to prepare himself and the rest of the family for any emergencies.

Then the new girl arrrives at school, unravelling Frankie's carefully controlled world.

This is a funny and entertaining novel by New Zealand author, Kate de Goldi.
