I know this is a bit of a stretch, but I'm trying to find a book I read in school. These are the details I remember:
>I'm pretty sure it's set in the first half of the 20th century. I have a feeling it's in the 1920s but not certain.
>A boy (10-13 years old?) has been injured in an explosion (his father is a demolitionist) and is sent to live with a relative somewhere on the Mediterranean coast for a while
>The boy was either from the UK or Australia
>He meets a girl around his age who is a bit idiosyncratic
I guess it was a bit of a coming of age story. I can't really remember any other details. The book was kind of old but I couldn't say how old exactly. Almost certainly written before 2000, anyway, and either published in Australia or the UK
