A Bunch of Battlers
When Peter (14), Robyn (11) and Billy (5) are left without parents or guardians, the Child Welfare Department take charge of them. The Department have a plan for the children’s future, but the children have their own plans. With the resourcefulness typical of Australian bush kids, they manage to “fly beneath the radar” of the authorities in such a way that they are never identified as missing. The children pack their gear on bicycles and travel the far outback regions of Australia looking for a home where they can live together. The young writer based most of the events on her own experiences. This is a fast moving story with plenty of humor.
