The first book by Printz Award winner Zusak is now being published in the U.S.—and on audio. It's the rough-and-ready story of two Australian brothers, Cameron and Ruben, told in Cameron's plaintive 15-year-old whine. Stig Wemyss's youthful narration captures the unintended irony, pathos, and humor (all with an Aussie accent, of course) in this tale of petty pranks, dirty habits, bloody fights, unsympathetic parents, and unrequited loves. The story is action-packed, lightweight fun aimed squarely at boys—but without the amazing insights into the human spirit that have infused Zusak's later works.
