Maggie Thomas – Journal 2

Character Quotation
Her mother “My mother and I have a pretty good relationship, if a bit erratic.

Her father



“She slept with the boy next door when they were sixteen and before anything could be decided he moved to Adelaide.” – pg. 7

Jacob Coote



“He looks like a grot sometimes because of his hair and ear-ring and wild look, but when he smiles its warm and sincere. Never ever fake.” –pg. 150
Poison Ivy



“ No matter how much I hate poison ivy, I want to belong to her and her world.” – pg.
John Barton



“School captain of St Anthony’s. Son of member of parliament. Greatest debater who ever lived. Good-looking. Popular. Tell me, what more could I want out of life? – pg. 41
