From the author of My Story: Sabotage! Growing up in 1970s Hamilton, Jackie Simms is sustained by two great loves: the Swedish supergroup Abba, and her older brother's friend, Davey. But Jeff and Davey have a great adventure planned that doesn't include Jackie ...a scenic flight to Antarctica. Through the eyes of one who was left behind we experience the horror and the aftermath of the airline crash on Mt Erebus, New Zealand's worst air disaster. October 2009 marks 30 years since this horrific crash.
