Sharkey's Son (school edition) memoranda

This award-winning novel is a story of friendship, adventure and a journey of trust. When thirteen-year-old Grant’s dad disappears, the only clue to his whereabouts is R50 000 in a cell phone FLASH account. Rather than going to his uncle in Cape Town, Grant decides to run away to find his fisherman father. But before long he finds himself hurt and alone on a secluded West Coast beach. Desperate to remain hidden from the authorities, Grant seeks the help of Smiler and Ally; but can they be trusted? Winner of the Gold Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature (2007). This school edition of Sharkey’s Son is included in the Department of Basic Education’s National Catalogue for Senior Phase learners.
