Olympic fever runs high in the Australian summer of 1999 and 17-year-old Sydney has caught it. Little does she know taking a holiday job in the beehive that is the Olympics' public-transport call centre will be life altering. She is trying to negotiate her parents’ divorce, abusive callers, obnoxious government agencies, constrictive office rules, and liberated friends as her own personal Olympics when Pete sees through her tough outer shell. This former child prodigy from Boston knows what it takes to present a dignified front when all you want to do is howl at the moon. Treating their friendship like an art, Pete invests time and creative effort to pull Sydney out of her despair.
Tragedy strikes when an accident leaves Pete with a major brain injury in a Boston hospital. When the going gets very, very tough, will you abandon the one who has promised to love you until he dies?
Set in Sydney and Boston where heartbreaks are juxtaposed with humor, SYDNEY’S SONG by Ia Uaro is a humorous fiction, adventure, coming of age, and love story that follows an undefeatable girl's courageous journey to adulthood.
"Sydney’s Song a warm and enjoyable coming-of-age tale." - KIRKUS REVIEWS

A Collection of Metaphysical Short Stories
Beyond’s young adult short stories cross cultures and take place in settings from North America to Europe. A metaphysical / religious motif binds the collection, and stories are set in times dating back to 1932—when swing dancing in Detroit was the rage—to a recent state science competition in New Mexico. “Play” deals with a girl’s attempt to mitigate her feelings about violence in the home; in “Callanish Stones”, a young boy is found on a remote beach in Scotland, barely alive; “Finding Edith Allen” centers on a young woman in search of her birth mother; and “Mont. St. Michel” tells the story of a child raised by a Bishop in France. The short stories are traditional storytelling with a focus on character, setting, and an event. In “Mind Over Maelstrom” Clare has a gift she keeps secret from birth until a violent storm overcomes her neighborhood; and “Marker at Yellowknife” takes the reader to one of the most remote locations in North America along the shores of the Great Slave Lake. The stories mix male and female protagonists with families and friends, often in school settings, and allow each reader to discover something new.
