When Lockie Leonard wipes out on a huge wave, he is thrown into a friendship with the weird, but extremely intelligent "Metal Head," Geoff "Egg" Eggleston, who joins Lockie in his crusade to clean up the pollution in his coastal Australian town's harbor.

Nothing's simple for Lockie Leonard. He's only lived in town for a year and his dad's the local police sergeant, two facts that don't win Lockie any popularity contests. Dumped by his popular girlfriend, he's back to being the loneliest kid in town until he makes friends with Geoff Eggleston, or Egg, the weirdest human being Lockie's ever known. Egg is a dark-haired, pimply-faced, very bright 'Metal Head' who can't even swim, though their town is right on the Australian coast. By contrast, Lockie is a trim, blond, expert surfer. Lockie and Egg decide to somehow clean up the town's harbor, partly covered with scum from industrial waste. In the middle of all their planning, Lockie falls in love again, this time with a girl who turns out to be only eleven. To make it worse, she surfs better than he does, though he's the best in his school. Can a thirteen-year-old surfrat have a headbanger for a best friend, stay in love with a eleven-year-old gremmie, and still save his town from industrial pollution?Was this review helpful?
