Ghost River

Archie Kemp knows trouble when he sees it, and he sees it when 13-year-old Sonny Brewer moves in next door.  But life for the dirt-poor kid of an alcoholic father in hard-knocks Collingwood can be brutal, violent even, so it's lucky for Sonny he finds a friend in Archie's stepson, Ren, and both boys find freedoma dn adventure along the winding banks of the Yarra.  Each time they visit, another secret slips into its ancient waters.  But change and trouble are coming - to the river and to the lives of those who love it.  Who will have the courage to fight and survive and what will be the cost?

Tony Birch is the author of Blood (2011) which was shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Award.  He is also the author of Shadowboxing (2006), and two short story collections, Father's Day (2009) and The Promise (2014).
