Publisher Description

Girl Saves Boy is the fresh and quirky debut novel from 16-year-old Melbourne blogger Steph Bowe.


Isn't it enough having your very own terminal disease, without your mother dying? Or your father dating your Art teacher?


No wonder Sacha Thomas ends up in the lake that Saturday evening…but the real question is: how does he end up in love with Jewel Valentine?


With the help of quirky teenage prodigies Little Al and True Grisham, Sacha and Jewel have a crazy adventure, with a little lobster emancipation along the way. But Sacha's running out of time, and Jewel has secrets of her own.


Funny and sad, silly and wise, Girl Saves Boy is a story of life, death, love…and garden gnomes.

Steph Bowe was born in Melbourne in 1994. She began her writing career as a blogger, before publishing her first YA novel in 2010, at age sixteen. Girl Saves Boy was aptly descibed by Rebecca Stead as ‘full of the absolute truth—life is complicated’. Steph went on to publish two further YA novels, All This Could End, which was longlisted for the 2014 Gold Inky Award, and Night Swimming, a Children’s Book Council of Australian (CBCA) Notable Book in 2018, when it was also longlisted for a Sisters in Crime Davitt Award. In 2016 Steph was a May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust fellow. Her books have been translated into Spanish, Dutch and Catalan. Steph died on 20 January 2020, aged twenty-five, due to complications from T-cell acute lymphoblastic lymphoma, a form of leukaemia.
