Sonny and Ren are unlikely best friends growing up in late 1960s Australia in this rite of passage novel. Living on the margins of society in the slums of Collingwood, Sonny wants to escape his violent, alcoholic father — he works a paper run and hides out along the Yarra River. His neighbour, Ren, is a quiet loner obsessed the birds he sees at the river banks. Ghost River is a tale of friendship and loss, and the Yarra shines with a personality of its own.
