Publisher's Summary

The second in the Wolfe Brothers trilogy, the first publications of the author of The Book Thief.

The working class family of Cameron Wolfe and his brother, Ruben, isn't having much luck these days. Their dad has just lost his job and is too proud to go on welfare. Their older brother has moved out of the house in disgust. Which leaves them open to suggestion when a local boxing promoter signs them up for illegal bouts. But it's more than the meagre winnings that draws the two brothers in. Soon they find themselves fighting for something else. Is it pride? Love? Or just the experience of winning for once? A knockout debut from the front lines of a family's recession.

The Wolfe Pack Always Stick Together

This novel was brilliant and loved by my Year 9 students. Although some of the voices and accents were slightly extreme, it really allowed us all to feel like we knew the characters. A few of the words had been changed, compared to the original text that we had, but that also gave us an opportunity to speculate why this would be. The story was great and set the book firmly in a working class family that clearly stuck by each other through all the conflicts that the world had thrown at them. The characters were likeable and seeing the world through Cameron's eyes helped us feel how he related to his brother Ruben when they got sucked into underground boxing to earn cash to support their family.
