Description

'You want to hear a story?' 'Eh?' 'This town, it's full of stories. Some Aboriginal, some white, some Malay and Indonesian. All sorts of different ideas. I reckon you might need to hear on of them.' When the court sent Jamie Riley to Port Barren, he hadn't expected much - thought he'd just serve his time and get out. He hadn't counted on being drawn into the town's murky past, into a web of secrets, lies and murder which might well cost him much more than just his freedom. This is the story of a boy's journey to reveal a buried secret, and of a town too scared of its past to face its future. It's a story for anyone who dreams . . .

"Bookseller + Publisher"" ""A New Kind of Dreaming" makes you think about the crime and injustice that go unpunished in our world today. It is an excellent tale I guarantee that you will find it very difficult to put this novel away." "Courier-Mail"" "A New Kind of Dreaming makes you think about the crime and injustice that go unpunished in our world today. It is an excellent tale ... I guarantee that you will find it very difficult to put this novel away." --Courier-Mail "Eaton succeeds in establishing a terrific atmosphere, very vividly evoking life in the hot dusty town claustrophobically sandwiched between sea and desert. His prose is tight, the narrative thrust strong and convincing in its exploration of the continuing legacy of the past." --Canberra Times "Eaton has created an unputdownable book ... this is an enthralling story for teenage readers, maintaining a great deal of anticipation, excitement and pace. A well-told and beautifully written tale." --Bookseller + Publisher
