My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Twelve year old Ben and his seven year old sister Olive are forced to leave their home when their parents go on the run. Set in Australia, the family heads to a cabin in the wild and eludes the police while carrying a bag with one million dollars, part of a banking error. Dad is a bully and mom is not too far behind. Ben has a dilemma: loyalty to his family, or to his goal of becoming a cop?
Author Bancks gives us an unnerving perspective of life through Ben’s honest eyes.
