Creek Station, written by acclaimed British debut novelist Ali
Lewis, is available March 2016 in the United States from Carolrhoda
Lab™, an imprint of Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner
Publishing Group. Originally published as Everybody Jam in
the UK and shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Medal, this gritty
novel set in Australia is a thoughtful, page-turning masterpiece.
Danny Dawson lives on a cattle station in the Australian outback.
Usually the annual cattle muster excites Danny, but everything is
different now. Because Danny’s beloved older brother died in an accident
last year, and nobody will talk about it. Because his teenage sister is
pregnant and won’t tell anyone who the father is. Because his mother
can’t cope with any of it and has hired a wide-eyed English house girl
to deal with the family.
Told in first-person narrative, Timber
Creek Station is the story of a grieving family, entrenched
racism, and the surprising ways one boy—who thought he’d be stuck in one
terrible place forever—can take a leap forward.
