Dizzy by Cathy Cassidy
Dizzy's mum Storm suddenly waltzes back into her life afters years of absence. Dizzy has a shrine in her room with the postcards she receives yearly from her mother, and she has waited all her life for this moment. Twelve year old Dizzy is swept of her feet and leaves her Dad temporarily to go on six week trip in a glitzed up combi to hippie type festivals where she finds herself sleeping in teepees, eating natural foods and learning all manner of crafts. Suddenly, she is missing her dad, babysitting a younger child called Mouse, and not so sure about her decision. That is, until Finn, another festival child captures her attention and they become close friends.
I read this book in a night, if you enjoy Cathy Cassidy, you will not be disappointed with this one.
