'It's propulsive, moving, dark and full of hope and heart. He's a genius. My book of the year.' - Craig Silvey

Between looking after her brother and the combination of jobs she's trying to juggle, Lynette is dangerously tired. And when, after years of trying to scrape together enough for a mortgage, her plan is derailed, she must embark on a desperate odyssey through a city of greed.
