Abandoned by her mother as a toddler, only occasionally visited by her volatile father and raised solely by her tormented Pop, Justine finds sanctuary in The Choke, a place where the banks of the Murray River are so narrow they can almost touch. Although Justine doesn't know it, her father is a menacing criminal, and the world she is exposed to is one of great peril to her. She must make sense of it on her own - and when she eventually does, she knows what she has to do....

Raw and authentic
Now I am somewhat closer to understanding poverty, love, friendship, evil, abuse and the vast complexities and responsibilities of familial love. I couldn't wait until the ending. What an authentic and raw Australian book!
