Dogleg Bay is one big retirement home; the richest man in town - the funeral director - drives a hotted-up hearse.

Hunter Vettori is thirteen, and longs to catch a record-breaking mulloway, leave Dogleg Bay, and become bigger then Rexy Hunt.

On the way, maybe he'll get to kiss a girl (there's only two to choose from and they're twins), save his mum from getting a really bad tatt and find out if Target really has a section called Christian Smart Casual.

But, above all, Hunter wants his father back.

Jetty Rats is a fast, funny, insightful and moving novel that will make you laugh out loud and perhaps want to go fishing!

Phillip Gwynne

Phillip Gwynne's first novel Deadly Unna? was the literary hit of 1998 winning Children's Book of the Year and selling over 200,000 copies.

It was made into the feature film Australian Rules for which Phillip's screenplay won an AFI award in 2002. Since then Phillip's novels have all received both high acclaim and popularity amongst readers including his young adult novel Swerve which was shortlisted for many awards amongst them the 2010 Prime Minister's Award and the Golden Inky.

Phillip's also no stranger to writing thrillers as he has written an adult detective thriller The Build Up, but The Debt is his first series for upper-primary school readers and combines both his substantial literary skills and his ability to tell a good story.
