Comity is puzzling over one of life’s mysteries: why are people racist? Since her mum died of snakebite, Aboriginal yard boy Fred has been her only friend. Yet her father’s new assistant plays terribly cruel games with him. A dangerous fight for justice in the remote outback: dust, fierce heat, friendship, secrets and courage. This is kind of like an Aussie Holes, with an equally creepy villain and truly stellar writing. Plus, how can you argue with a first line like ‘The piano arrived too late to stop the sky falling in’?
