The words were in my mouth and the tune was in my blood, and it felt so loud I thought: If Alex kisses me, he’ll hear it singing through my skin. And I wanted him to hear. Because he grinned electricity through my bones, when most days I play solo and acoustic. Because Dahlia’s new friends might like me if I had something other than music to talk about during Louise Spatula’s post-party analysis.

He and Rose leave and I sit in the garden, singing my song about the day. About an hour later he comes back. You left this at Rose’s, he says, holding out my hat.

What struck me most about A Little Wanting Song was the setting, the atmosphere Cath Crowley has created here. Charlie is a character I loved with all my heart. I always love books set in Australia - there's just something about them. The small-town setting is vivid and just really well done. The only part I didn't like is the romance. I'm never a fan of forcing romance on a story that doesn't need it, and it felt sort of like that in A Little Wanting Song.
