AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Fourteen-year-old Jack is bullied in school, yet spoilt rotten at home by his rich, well-meaning parents who relentlessly baby-proof Jack’s life in case of looming dangers. Although, the hazards of Jack’s life pale into insignificance when compared to his young neighbour Thomas who lived through the war in Southern Sudan. Neither does it compare to the danger raised when Jack’s dad reverses his luxury 4x4 out their drive...' Source: www.stagewhispers.com.au/ (Sighted 08/02/2012).
