A Good Day for Climbing Trees by Jaco Jacob, translated by Kobus Geldenhuys How two unlikely heroes inspire a whole town by fighting to save a tree.
 
Sometimes, in the blink of an eye, you do something that changes your life forever.
 
Like climbing a tree with a girl you don't know.
 
Marnus is tired of feeling invisible, living in the shadow of his two brothers.
 
His older brother is good at breaking swimming records and girls' hearts. His younger brother is already a crafty entrepreneur who has tricked him into doing the dishes all summer.

And finally, Marnus gets the chance to be noticed...
