From the moment 15-year-old Amelia gets an after-school job at the local supermarket she is sunk, gone, lost, head-over-heels in love with Chris. Chris is the funny, charming, man-about- Woolies - but he's 21 and in his final year at uni. The six- year age gap may as well be a hundred.

Chris and Amelia talk about everything from Second Wave Feminism to Great Expectations and Alien, but will he ever look at her in the way she wants him to?

A story that's real and warm and just a little bit heartbreaking.

First published as Good Oil.
