The Break

Author(s): Phillip Gwynne

Young Adult

From the author of the literary hit, Deadly Unna, comes a fast-paced rite-of-passage set amidst the mythical surf and island culture of Bali, and up to its neck in the madness of its politics and the terrifying consequences of breaking the rules...

Growing up with the famous Bali surf at his backdoor, Taj had a perfect childhood - until 10 years ago when three robed judges sentenced his father to death.

But Kimbo didn't die - he's been on death row ever since, leaving Taj in a weird limbo, unable to look to his own future. When the election of a new president leads to a date being set for Kimbo's execution, Taj realises there is only one course of action left to him - bust his dad out of jail. What follows is the whirlwind ride of father and son on the run through Indonesia, authorities hot on their tail.

As events unravel, Taj uncovers some startling truths about his family, his girlfriend, and the girl he is rapidly falling for.
