Flying through Clouds

Synopsis:

It’s not easy being a teenage boy growing up in a tough neighbourhood in Sydney in the 1930s. It’s even harder when your dream is to become an aviator, your parents are dead against it, and your girlfriend’s father is the School Principal. But Joe has even bigger challenges he must face and obstacles to overcome if he wants to achieve his dream. He has a plan and won’t let anyone stand in his way.


A well-researched, moving and often humorous novel about a teenage boy's dream of becoming an aviator amid the pressures and hardships of the Great Depression.

but not the ability to direct the only performance by my classmates.
