Freia Lockhart's Summer of Awful

By Aimee Said

How [not] to keep it together when your world falls apart.

Freia Lockhart has the essentials for an awesome summer: great new friends, a supremely kissable boyfriend, plans for New Year’s Eve (which don’t include her parents) and no school. When her mum reveals some devastating news, Freia’s plans for the summer of her dreams are crushed. Now she’s trying to keep things together at home and salvage her holidays, but it’s not easy when you’ve got secrets to keep, a little brother who’s going off the rails and a nosy gran who won’t stay out of your business.

  • Winner, Australian Family Therapists’ Award for Children’s Literature, 2013
  • This is the sequel to Finding Freia Lockhart, which had a Special Mention in the 2011 Munich International Youth Library White Ravens List.
  • “Aimee Said writes with a characteristic lightness and humour that is a joy to read. The trials of young friendships, sibling rivalries and family dynamics are realistic and moving, not just for the target audience of teenage girls; I found myself relating easily to Freia’s personal woes and dreams. I hope Said brings us more in the series.” – Books+Publishing
