From the bestselling author of Mallawindy and the Woody Creek series comes a story of love and rescue

“The narrative is achingly engrossing” Weekend Australian

She had felt a sad pulling feeling in her stomach that day as the car had driven off, like there was a bit of elastic tied around her insides, sort of joining her to those brothers like it went right through that door, and as the car had driven further up the road, that elastic got pulled so tight, it hurt.

Lori Smyth-Owen is balancing on the edge of adolescence but feeling years older. She has eleven brothers, nine living at home and the twins, who were stolen by Aunty Eva … which was lucky for them because there is never enough of anything to go around, except Mavis, Lori’s mother, who is so overweight she can barely move. That doesn’t stop her plotting to get those twins back. She’ll do anything to get them home.

Then tragedy strikes and the Smyth-Owen children take desperate measures to save themselves … and in so doing, discover that blood ties mean everything.
