FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE CBCA BOOK OF THE YEAR HELICOPTER MAN 'Love's not a cake,' I say. 'You don't carve it into pieces 'til there's none left; it's more like the Magic Pudding - the more you use of it, the more it grows.' Anna and Jamie are inseparable, the brother and sister team who face the world, their family and school together. Their love for each other is bigger than anything else they know and stronger than any ordinary bond. It is Jamie who challenges Anna throughout her life, Jamie who drives her to do things and makes her grow up, Jamie who dares her to jump off Ben Hall's Rock, smoke weed and drive fast round Carrot Wash Bend. When Anna Boyd kills her brother, what follows next is a revelation to all, but most especially Anna. Before I killed him, my big brother was my best friend. We did everything together, went everywhere together. I could tell Jamie anything - A powerful verse novel from one of Australia's acclaimed storytellers.
