Sinclair Currie

With so many different people out to get him for the crime of just being himself, sixteen year old Rob McDonald does what he and his mother have always done - they run.

Abandoning his best friend, Kevin, and also the beautiful April, who has only just recently acknowledged his existence, they leave their settled life on the coast and head for the hills.

A broken promise sees them stranded, out of money and petrol, in a sleepy little town. How will Rob and his mother survive? What unexpected life-changing gift does he receive? And what compels him to risk entering a property where the owner threatens to shoot him, only for him to make a remarkable discovery inside?

Re-united with his nerdy friend, Kevin, Rob learns to ride the rocky, sometimes dangerous, terrain of his new life, where the risk-taking skills he uses to outrun and outsmart his enemies become the same skills that just might help him become a world champion mountain biker, and start him on the long exhilarating journey towards dreaming the impossible.

The author was born and grew up in Scotland, but currently lives with his wife in coastal, south-east Queensland, Australia. This new book is set in the imaginary township of Broken Heads, which is an amalgam of many of the small coastal communities found scattered along the east coast of Australia, with the geography and idiosyncratic charm of Broken Heads typical of these small townships.

The book arises from the author's love of walking Australia's wild deserted surf beaches, and affection for the unique laidback feel of these small coastal communities, where the values and the lived experience are a welcome contrast to the pressures of city life, and more nurturing of the human spirit.
