He has no father figure as his Dad left them. Sam's family has little money to spend even though they all get jobs in the end. Leanne is a typical 15 year old only interested in guys and fashion. Leanne works at Belinda's family's hot bread shop with her Mum. Leanne seems to change moods very quickly. Sam's mum seems not to want him and Leanne to grow up and be independent.Belinda's family is well off. Her Mum and Dad own the hot bread shop where Sam's Mum and Leanne work. Belinda's family consists of Belinda, her mum and dad and her sister Cassie. Belinda describes her family as her mum- the boss, dad- easy to charm, Cassie- Annoying. Cassie is two years younger and is in grade 5 in Primary school. Belinda's example of how to charm her dad is to con him into buying her contacts. Belinda looks like her dad with his hair and face while Cassie looks like her Mum with her hair and face. In Belinda's opinion her Mum favours Cassie.Why are looks important to Sam and Belinda and is it the right way to think?Looks are important to Sam and Belinda but it's not the way to think in my opinion. Individuality is far more important the fitting in with the right people.

(Turns around) Belinda wants to join the surf team!Chani: Get real its all boys.Belinda: Exactly…Chani: But you'll look desperate with all the guys!Belinda: You don't have to be a chook to be on an egg board.Mel: Yeah and you don't have to be the only drip on a surfboard, they will slaughter you Bin.Belinda: (Hovers around the room)Cathy: OK (in Belinda's ear) were gunna come with you but only for support, right?Which part of the book did you enjoy the most?The best part of the book was when Sam goes to the doctors to get himself a hormone patch. I was sitting on my chair laughing my head off while reading it. After that Sam walks out feeling like a walking sexual...
