Wonderboy Summary

Wonderboy by Fiona Gibson

Ro and Marcus have swapped London Life for a cottage in a peaceful country village. They want a safe, peaceful environment for their young son. At least, Marcus does. Secretly, Ro wonders how she'll cope with cowpats and snorting livestock. What Marcus and Ro agree on is the fact that their son isn't like most boys of his age. Tod is obsessed with mazes. He designs them, dreams about them, demands to visit them. When a newcomer threatens the 'best-kept' village status by allowing his garden to grow wild, Marcus starts a log of the lawn's height and condition. As the newcomer becomes the first friend her son has ever had, Ro is faced with a life-changing decision! Wonderboy is a story about what happens when a couple downshifts to the country, with a child who is scared of any animal bigger than a hamster. Can marriage survive when a man buys his wife a hoe for her birthday? And is the countryside any place to bring up a kid?
