One Dead Seagull


One Dead Seagull is a book about life. About making it, even when the odds are shit. About finding love in the strangest places. About mates and fear and being wild.

‘The characters in the story are very believable, the situations are totally credible, and the language realistic and easy to read.  It is down-to-earth and very Australian; a refreshingly honest account of life as an Australian teenager.  I would recommend it for high school students’   READING TIME Vol 45 No 4

‘This is an often hilarious glimpse into a fifteen-year-old boy’s life – randiness and all.  Gardner has the ability to describe very funny events mainly through dialogue.  Exchanges are frank and concern matters that engross teenagers.’  Helen Purdie, MAGPIES July 2001
