To Nancy and Joe Davis, and to Jessie and Tom Crowley-. My beautiful grandparents. Only, that day it was. I had the first line of a new song in my head. A song about a guy and a party and a smile.
To Nancy and Joe Davis, and to Jessie and Tom Crowley-. The words were in my mouth and the tune was in my blood, and it felt so loud I thought: If Alex kisses me, he’ll hear it singing through my skin. And I wanted him to hear. Because he grinned electricity through my bones, when most days I play solo and acoustic. Because Dahlia’s new friends might like me if I had something other than music to talk about during Louise Spatula’s post-party analysis.
I want to stay with them. I sing him a little version of the song I’ve been working on. Love’s a funny song. The words don’t make much sense, and the beat comes out all wrong. But it goes a little like this. I want to talk all night to Dave and then kiss him. I want to sing a few songs just for him. There’s something I have to do first, though. You get that from your mother, Dad says when I walk over.
I strum A Little Wanting Song. It’s just a little wanting song. It won’t go on for all that long. Just long enough to say. Soft and sad. I let the old voice of the guitar rise like the moon and it floats and dips around me. A Little Wanting Song. How much I’m wishing for. Just a little more. Hang out the washing for me? Mum asks when I walk in the door.
A Little Wanting Song book. See a Problem? We’d love your help. A summer of friendship, romance, and songs in major chords.
He and Rose leave and I sit in the garden, singing my song about the day. About an hour later he comes back. You left this at Rose’s, he says, holding out my hat. He stands there, rolling his bike. back and forward, and I want to ask him in. For a girl who doesn’t talk all that much, strangely I have a million or more things I want to say to Dave. They’re not even important things.
A Little Wanting Song left me wanting to know more about author Cath Crowley, but the biographical information immediately at hand was a little light, so I did some digging.

A Little Wanting Song is told in alternating points of view, switching between Charlie and Rose. What struck me most about A Little Wanting Song was the setting, the atmosphere Cath Crowley has created here.
A Little Wanting Song is told in alternating points of view, switching between Charlie and Rose. Charlie is a character I loved with all my heart. I always love books set in Australia - there's just something about them. The small-town setting is vivid and just really well done. The only part I didn't like is the romance. I'm never a fan of forcing romance on a story that doesn't need it, and it felt sort of like that in A Little Wanting Song.
Cath Crowley grew up in rural Victoria, Australia. A Little Wanting Song was shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award. To find out more about Cath, please visit ww. athcrowley. Библиографические данные.
