              Into the World (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Dawe, Ted

              "'I've learnt plenty, Mr Faull, but it all comes down to this: there is freedom and then there is everything else.' He opened the door. 'And today I give away everything else, and I choose freedom.' So ends the first part of Devon's journey, from nearly drowning in a tapu river t...o his expulsion from an exclusive Boy's school. Into the World is where Devon begins to understand just how costly that freedom is. That decisions made quickly can lead to disaster. That loyalty counts for nothing until it is tested. That love, like security is nothing more than a commodity"--Back cover.

              A gripping, gritty and award-winning coming-of-age novel for young adult readers. When Te Arepa Santos is dragged into the river by a giant eel, something happens that will change the course of his whole life. The boy who struggles to the bank is not the same one who plunged in, ...moments earlier. He has brushed against the spirit world, and there is a price to be paid; an utu (revenge) to be exacted. Years later, far from the protection of whanau (family) and ancestral land, he finds new enemies. This time, with no one to save him, there is a decision to be made: he can wait on the bank, or leap forward into the river. At the 2013 NZ Post Childrens Book Awards Into the River was judged the Margaret Mahy Book of the Year. It also won the Young Adult Fiction category of the awards. An engaging coming-of-age novel, it follows its main protagonist from his childhood in small-town rural New Zealand to an elite Auckland boarding school, where he must forge his own way u including battling with his cultural identity. This prequel to Ted Dawe's award-winning novel Thunder Road is gritty, provocative, at times shocking, but always real and true. The awards' chief judge Bernard Beckett described a character "caught between two worlds ... the explicit content was presented as the danger of people being left adrift by society. And within that context, hard-hitting material is crucial; it is what makes the book authentic, real and important." The Deputy Chief Censor of Fim and Literature ruled that the book is not offensive: 'The book deals with some stronger content. There are sexual relationships between teenagers, encounters with possible child sexual exploitation, the use of illegal drugs and other criminal activities, violent assault, and a moderate level of highly offensive language. These are well contextualised within an exciting fast moving narrative that has as its protagonist, a young teenage Maori boy from a rural community who is finding his way through the strange u

              K Road (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Dawe, Ted

              Meet Jazz and Roxy and their mates, kids living on the edge, in a gritty YA novel by the author of the New Zealand Post Award-winning Thunder Road. In K Road we're introduced to a scattering of marginalised, demi-underworld characters whose lives connect and collide in a grip...ping narrative. K Road is peopled by transients, surfies, gang members, street kids, P-heads, kids on the run: an ever-expanding,jostling urban tribe. Dawe's prose is spare, gritty and gutsy with flashes of poetry and humour. We gain an acute sense of the pressures, fears, betrayals and loyalties inherent in living on the edge of the law, and of the tenuous grip each character has on their own safety and integrity. They're all there on K Road: Flash, Sonny, Geronimo, Vercoe, Wilson, Jazz, Roxy. But it's Jazz and Roxy, the 14 and 19-year-ld team on the run, who try to climb out of their savagely cruel and subterranean existence. Their survival ticket is Jazz's extraordinary musical talent; their love story heart-breaking.
