Fifteen-year-old Matthew Cassidy is an up-and-coming rugby league star.

Raw by Scott Monk Raw, Paperback (April 2005)

Brett Dalton is a tough guy - hardened, angry, uncaring and always ready to use his fists. When the world hates you, you might as well hate it back... But when Brett is busted by the cops for stealing and sent to The Farm for rehab, there are no fences to keep him in and anger gets in his way - but so does love.

Boyz R' Us by Scott Monk Boyz R' Us, Paperback (April 2005)

It's a long, mad ride from Summer Bay! Chicks, babes, cars and music; bored kids and shouting mothers; fathers that suck on a bottle to put themselves to sleep; and TV sets blaring mindlessly. Race tensions are hotting up in Marrickville and the media want a gang war so badly that they nearly start one.

Never Boys by Scott Monk Never Boys, Paperback (April 2005)

Dean Mason is a boy with many secrets. For starters, that's not his real name. On the run from the law he hides in the Barossa Valley, where he is discovered by a beautiful girl. Together they stir up trouble as each attempts to escape a world in which they feel trapped.

Author Biography - Scott Monk

Scott Monk is a monster hunter. After a round trip around the universe, he has written Beyond the Knock Knock Door - his first contemporary fantasy novel for children. It chronicles the story of the Bowman triplets who stop squabbling long enough to solve riddles, dodge swashbucklers, fight a ferocious creature, and eat plenty of good stuff that dentists absolutely abhor. Respected for his ability to get even the most reluctant readers to pick up a book, Scott has also written four novels for teenagers, including Boyz'R'Us, Raw, The Crush and The Never Boys. When he isn't busy hunting monsters, he works as a sub-editor for The Australian newspaper or watches his footy team being smashed.
