One afternoon police officers show up at Ben Silver’s front door Minutes after they leave his parents arrive home Ben and his little sister Olive are bundled into the car and told they?. This latest novel by Tristan Bancks is different from his earlier humourous light weight books for younger teens This story has a flawed protagonist Ben is often unsure of what is going on and accordingly makes decisions believable for a 13 year old His father the anagonist a menacing and unpredictable man drives this pacey and eually unpredictable story Ben is a thinker and a wonderer and so there are several solid themes running through this book including the one on which the title is basedThis book is hard to put down the bush settings are well described and well used to ramp up the action and I cared about Ben and his sister every step of the way A real winner of a book
