The Lord family live in the worst house on the best street. It might have been different if Suzi Lord's rock n roll parents, Strum and Miss Katy, hadn't stumbled on their way to stardom but after one hit single in Finland, it's been lentils for dinner ever since.

Despite all that, Suzi's older sister Janis is desperate to get the money to go on the school trip to France, so she takes matters into her own hands by renting out the spare room on ZedBedZ. But Suzi discovers that the spare room already has an occupant - the ghost of the band's dead drummer whose rhythmic skills might still be required.

Life on Melody Street never seems that harmonious, however. There's the broken leg that shatters Suzi's soccer dreams, a friend who needs a new band, a long-lost grandfather, the music mad Chinese student next door and some shady real estate deals going down.

With the driving beat of a rock anthem, the heart of a country ballad, and the contemporary feel of the latest hip-hop hit, Lords of Melody is about people overcoming their differences in order to cooperate, be creative, to make music together.

Phillip Gwynne

About the Author


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.
