The Shepherd's Hut

For the first time in me life I know what I want and I have what it takes to get me there. But it wasn't always like this. I been through fire to get here.

For years Jaxie Clackton has dreaded going home. His beloved mum is dead - and he wishes his dad was too, until one terrible moment leaves his life stripped to nothing. No one ever told Jaxie to be careful what he wishes for.

And so Jaxie runs. There's just one person in the world who understands him, but to reach her he'll have to cross the saltlands of Western Australia. It is a place that harbours criminals and threatens to kill those who haven't reckoned with its hot, waterless vastness. This is a journey only a dreamer - or a fugitive - would attempt.

A sweeping story of desperate survival, unlikely friendship and fierce love, The Shepherd's Hut is a coming-of-age story like no other: a masterpiece that explores what it takes to keep hope alive in a brutal world.

'Wonderful. Brutal, agonizing, tender' Sarah Winman, author of When God Was a Rabbit
