The man got angry, I could tell, even though I couldn't hear exactly what he was saying.

Then my father said, 'I'd kill you first.' On his eleventh birthday, Jacob's father gives him a diary.

And how far will his father go to keep the world at bay?All too soon, Jacob will learn that, sometimes, people do the most terrible things. From the bestselling author of WIMMERA and THE RIP comes an unforgettable novel that explores the darkness in our world with the light only a child can find.
