Sway, Kat Spears

16.99 AUD
In Kat Spears' hilarious and often poignant debut, high school senior Jesse Alderman, or "Sway," specialises in getting things people want - term papers, a date with the prom queen and fake IDs. For Jesse, life is simply a series of business transactions. But when Ken Foster, football team captain and all-around jerk, hires Jesse to help him win the heart of the angelic Bridget Smalley, Jesse finds himself falling helplessly in love. He also forms an accidental friendship with Bridget's belligerent and self-pitying younger brother who has cerebral palsy.
Suddenly, Jesse is visiting old folks at a nursing home in order to run into Bridget, and offering his time to help the less fortunate, all the while developing a bond with this young man who idolises him. Could the tin man really have a heart after all?
