Description - Gracey by James Moloney
Gracey has come home to Cunningham on holiday. But now she's a state athletics champion and a private school student, and everything looks different - even frightening. Dougy, her younger brother, has dropped out of school and spends his time doing odd jobs around the town. It's Dougy who makes the discovery - Raymond, the eldest, is a football star; he played A-grade in Sydney and is doing really well for the local team, isn't he? Part history, part mystery, Gracey is a challenging story about the past and the present, murder and compassion, and black and white identity.
