Hello From Nowhere by Raewyn Caisley
Published by Penguin Books Australia
Outback living, that is, in a small town that services the highway. The small towns dotted around that have a population of the number of people that make up the essential services and no more.
Eve shows us the differences of living in a place where the animals are abundant and free and how their actions can be amusing. We see the number and variety of the people passing through on tourist buses and how she can learn so much more and differently from the city. Eve shows us her life in a way that many children may end up envying her.
This is a story about the Australian outback but a different Australian outback, this is modern living needs and services meet the desert.
