Yearning for his famous outlaw parents, denied all access to television and the news, he takes hope from his long-haired teenage neighbour who predicts "They will come for you, man. They'll break you out of here."
Soon Che too is an outlaw, fleeing down subways, abandoning seedy motels at night, as he is pitched into a journey that leads him to a hippy commune in the jungle of tropical Queensland. Here he slowly, bravely, confronts his life, learning that nothing is what it seems.

The writing. It has so many twists and turns, you can't stop listening to it.
The fact that you were kept in suspense right till the last page.
The description of the hinterland and the lifestyle of the people on the Sunshine Coast at that time.
This is a delightful book. Although it is difficult in the beginning, it is well worth persevering with it.
