Ro and her mom eventually move out of roach central and into a house that is owned by a guy on vacation. Now her mysterious new boyfriend is popping up at her new residence and Ro hasnâ€™t a clue as to how he found her. When she goes to tell anyone of his name, she finds herself afflicted with non-stop stuttering as if his name is not to be told. Strange things happen when Ro is with Patrick. Like for instance, one minute she is at her house and the next she is on the beach with no clue as to how she got there. When her best friend Hallie asks to meet Patrick, things get more complicated and Ro finds herself not sure of exactly what she sees or why Patrick isnâ€™t seen by anyone but her.
I found BOY DOWN UNDER by Sally Odgers to be a very great book to read. The mystery surrounding Roâ€™s boyfriend was well thought of and made the plot more exciting. Roâ€™s character experienced a lot of confusion and I did too at times as I found myself wondering if Patrick was real or not. I recommend this book to readers my age and up because it will keep you reading until the very end and it will not disappoint you.
