Te Tram to Bondi Beach
by Libby Hathorn
Set in 1932 against the magical backdrop of Bondi Beach, in the year the Sydney Harbour Bridge opens, the days of Phar Lap and Charles Kingsford Smith, Keiran - a boy from Bondi - hopes to help his family survive the depression. Hurtling towards the beach one morning in the famous Bondi 'Rattler, Keiran is inspired to become a paper boy on the Bondi trams. No sooner does his dream begin to take shape than it is threatened by Saxon, the chief paper boy. Tensions build as their rivalry grows and culminates in a dramatic climax with unexpected results. Can dreams really come true? Keiran's quest is to find out!
