Anyone can make a MISTAKE. To mess things up BIG TIME takes GENIUS.

Packed with action, heart and humour, Waiting for Gonzo takes you for a white-knuckle ride on the Wheel of Destiny as it careers out of control down the Hillside of Inevitability.

From the acclaimed author of 15 Days Without A Head comes a hugely hilarious and heartfelt novel introducing the reader to Cousins' invention of pure comedy genius, Oz the flawed but lovable joker.

Meet Oz . . .

Oz is a joker who attracts disasters like magnets to a fridge. . . 

. . . he's got a talent for trouble but his heart's always in the right place (well, nearly always). Uprooted from his friends and former life, Oz finds himself stranded in the sleepy village of Slowleigh. When a joke backfires on the first day at his new school, Oz attracts the attention of Isobel Skinner, the school psycho - but that's just the beginning.

After causing an accident that puts his mum in hospital, Oz isn't exactly popular at home either. His older sister's no help, but then she's got a problem of her own...

...one that's growing bigger by the day. Oz knows he's got to put things right, but life isn't that simple, especially when the only people still talking to you are a hobbit-obsessed kid and a voice in your own head!
