It’s not easy being a teenage boy growing up in the tough neighbourhood of Glebe in the 1930s. It’s even harder when your dream is to become an aviator, your parents are dead against it, and your girlfriend’s father is the School Principal. But Joe has even bigger challenges he must face and obstacles to overcome if he wants to achieve his dream. He has a plan and won’t let anyone stand in his way.

Flying through Clouds is a coming-of-age novel written for teenagers. It deals sensitively with themes and issues such as adolescence, family, friendship, the Depression, resilience, courage, determination, truth, responsibility, survival, fear, loss, grief, bullying, violence, gambling, education and work. It weaves historical detail through the narrative so readers can experience what it was like for teenagers living in Sydney in the 1930s.
