Book Description

A compelling and touching coming-of-age story set in the magnificent Australian outback.

All my helpless, angry thoughts suddenly came together to form one word.
One answer.
Australia.
On the other side of the world.
An escape from everything…

Stacey's life's not great. Her dad's run off, she and her mum live alone in a poky flat, school's one big bore and her friends are all bad news. Then, out of the blue, a glamorous gran she's never met comes to visit – all the way from Australia. When Stacey gets the worst news yet, Grandma Glendine has the perfect solution…

Suddenly, Stacey's life in grey old London is swapped for the heat, dust, flies, and even scorpions and snakes, of the outback. Will all this (plus – yuck! – an outside toilet) prove too much for Stacey the city-girl? And is her flashy, rich gran quite who she seems…?

An accessible, beautifully researched novel, written by an author who always tells a cracking good story.

Stealing Stacey is a wonderful book. Stacey lives with her mum in central london without a dad. When her mum has to help her dad who has got in police trouble, her rich saucy Austrailian nan takes her to Austrailia for a holiday. But Staceys nan isnt quite what she seems. Stealing Stacey is an exciting origanal book that cant be put down

4.0 out of 5 stars Stealing Stacey 7 July 2006
Format:Paperback
This book was good, but it got quite boring in places. It gives a good idea of life in Australia in the Bush. It is about a girl called Stacey (not surprisingly!) who goes to stay with her Grandma in the Bush in Australia. For Stacey, this is a completely new way of life! It is about how she gets on there, her adventures and what happens to her there.
