Angus & Robertson
What happens when Steven Plumtree, a young blacksmith from 1840, is suddenly stranded in the 21st century? At least he has Cara Gillespie and her mum to help out - but can they teach him to tackle tea bags, television and the twin-flush toilet? And will his budding relationship with Cara stand the strain?
Then there are the in-girls at Cara's school, who don't just want to know more about Steven. They want to know all about him!
More ominously, a big-haired television reporter, Sylvia Dare, is keen to discover the truth - and she in turn is being shadowed by the Department of Defence.
As if things weren't complicated enough, two time travellers from the 23rd century are hot on the trail of this sixteen-year-old 'strandee'. Only Jethro Summerwood and his companion, Grigor Tomolfski, know what will happen if Steven isn't returned to 1840 - and soon.
Can't they get hold of him before it's too late?
Cara, Mum, Steven and Jethro also appear in Mum, Me, the 19C, which was shortlisted for the 2002 Aurealis Awards, Young Adult Novel category.
