The vivid story of a teenage boy and the road trip that clears his head and his heart.

SHORT-LISTED: CBCA Book of the Year, Older Readers, 2019

Merrick Hilton's done a runner.

His folks think he's studying, but the real world has been calling for years and he can't ignore it any longer. A postie bike, a bedroll and a big sky - that's all he needs.

But there's no telling how he'll handle roadkill, stolen oranges and unexpected romance, let alone the rough stuff. And in the real world nothing goes entirely as planned. Thankfully Victor - the old bloke Merrick meets on the road - knows a thing or two about broken bike chains. And broken hearts.
Industry Reviews
'Scot Gardner's descriptions of the Australian landscape, as expressed by Merrick, feel so real that at times you hardly dare to breathe, so overwhelming is the absurd beauty of it. It makes you want to laugh and cry and lie down in the dirt to become a part of it. There is something about the emptiness of the land that fills Merrick up, and as a reader you feel filled up too. This is an excellent book for all young adults, but especially young men 14+.' - Dani Solomon, Readings Kids
