When Dougy's sister Gracey is picked for the state athletics championships, not everybody in their small bush town in pleased. "Aborigines get special treatment," some of the angry white people say.

About the Author:

James Moloney has worked at a fruit market and in a truck factory but it was his experience as a young teacher in western Queensland that led to his early novels, Crossfire, Dougy and Gracey. His short novel Swashbuckler won the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award in 1996 and in the following year, A Bridge to Wiseman's Cove was named Book of the Year in the CBCA's Older Readers category. His other titles have appeared regularly on shortlists for literary prizes and children's choice awards ever since.
