Dumby's the star of the footy team, he's got a killer smile and the knack with girls, and he's a Nunga. Blacky's a gutless wonder, needs braces, never knows what to say, and he's white.

This gutsy novel, set in a small coastal town in South Australia is a rites-of-passage story about two boys confronting the depth of racism that exists all around them.

    Story
    "Makes Aboriginal Australia Accessible to All."

    While the plot is rich in themes and insight into the relationship between mainstream Australian society and Australian Indigenos culture, the plot was too slow for my liking. it would be well suited to a young male teen audience, and especially if they have an interest in Australian Football (AFL) or sports in general. From the sample, I wasn't expecting the performance to be good, however the narrator really performed well aside from two characters who were not audibly distinguishable.

    "Tells it like it is"

    One of the most heartfelt and real books about growing up you will ever listen to.
