Publisher's Summary

In small-town suburbia, three young men are ready to make their mark.

Solomon is all charisma, authority and charm, down for the moment but surely not out. His half brother, Jimmy, bounces along in his wake, underestimated, waiting for his chance to announce himself. Aleks, their childhood friend, loves his mates, his family and his homeland and would do anything for them. The question is, does he know where to draw the line?

Solomon, Jimmy and Aleks: way out on the fringe of Australia, looking for a way in. Hip-hop and graffiti give them a voice. Booze, women and violence pass the time while they wait for their chance. Under the oppressive summer sun, their town has turned tinder dry. All it'll take is a spark.

As the surrounding hills roar with flames, the change storms in. But it's not what they were waiting for. It never is.

Mesmerising

Captivatingly written story of displacement, hope, violence and love. Visceral and shocking at times, dreamlike and full of beauty at others.

Great to hear it straight from the author

Great to hear it straight from the author's mouth, and heart.

Happy not to be living their lives, or intersecting them.
