It's the coming of age tale of Eli, growing up in Brisbane's western suburbs, raised by drug dealers. We follow Eli and his brother August, through all the bad things life could throw at them, yet there are a lot of positives in their lives too. Living in Brisbane I'm familiar with many of the locations in this book, and knowing that it is semi-autobiographical, it really comes to life.
This book will make you laugh, it will make you cry. It is simply magnificent. Thankyou Trent Dalton!
Trent, I don't know where you've been or what you've seen to have this story in you, but lucky for me you had. Can't wait to see what's next.
Simply unforgettably brilliant.
