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 such cruel games with him… A dangerous fight for justice in the remote outback: this is kind of like an Aussie Holes (with an equally creepy villain). Dust, fierce heat, friendship, courage and stellar writing by a truly great storyteller. Plus, how can you argue with a first line like ‘The piano arrived too late to stop the sky falling in’?
