135 pages. Jason Washington, fifteen, is learning to become a writer - fast! Acting on inside information about a proposed link road, he and his family have left the stifling life of the city to open a new restaurant in sleepy Gum Flats. But when the link road fails to appear and small-town rivalries take their toll, the Washingtons are threatened with emotional and financial disaster. In the meantime, Jason works enthusiastically on "The Great Secondhand Supper". With this short story, he hopes to win a lucrative prize and so ensure a bright future for the Meander Inn.A vivacious and intelligent schoolmate, Angela Conti, a kindly newsagent with a secret and a shonky developer all play a special part in this exciting and humorous story of Jason's development into a promising writer.
