The Bone Tree

by Airana Ngarewa


The story of two brothers, born and raised in the shadow of Taranaki Maunga, by 'one of Aotearoa's finest writers' (NZ Listener).
Kauri and Black's mum has been gone six months now. Their dad is barely holding on and the threat of child services taking Black looms large. Kauri won't let that happen, and so he embarks on a journey into their family's past. The only way to break the cycle of violence is to understand where it all began. But when an accident brings child services to their door, the race is on for Kauri to save his brother. And he will learn that no matter how brave he is or how strong he is, he cannot do it alone.
An unforgettable debut by a major new literary talent.
