Bursting Bubbles

By Dyan Sheldon

Three over-privileged teens discover what life is like on the other side of the tracks.

Marigold Liotta, Asher Grossman and Giorgiana Shiller have got it all – money, looks and good grades. Life couldn't get much better ... until their principal, Dr Kilpaticky, decides it's time to burst their bubble of advantage by assigning them tough community service placements as part of their school curriculum. And so the fun begins as Marigold finds herself tutoring a moody, silent nine year-old in a deprived part of town, Giorgiana is pushed to breaking point with an extremely sarcastic octogenarian in a nursing home and Asher is swamped with crying babies, flooded basements and the unemployed at a local community centre. With Dyan Sheldon's trademark irony and superb comic timing, Bursting Bubbles is a lively and touching story about how helping others can change you – for the better.
