In the Secret Place

Gary Crew

What does a teenage boy do when he has no friends? When everyone who knows him sneers. When he is laughed at to his face? The answer is simple. That boy chooses his own path. That boy makes his own way in life. That boy grows stronger. He finds his secret place and there — alone, in the dark — he grows even stronger. Ben Gardner is such a boy. Ben Gardner could be you…

“In this new book from multi-award winning, master writer, Gary Crew weaves together history and a profound connection to the Australian landscape in the story of a damaged boy growing up and finding his courage.“
