About this title


'Who wants to be the same as everyone else? You don't want to be ordinary, do you?' Tom always imagined he was adopted. At 17, he flees ordinariness in small-town Australia for Melbourne and a run-down block named Cairo. There he meets Max Cheever. Enigmatic, artistic, anarchic: Max liberates Tom into a new world - of first love, first crimes - and the greatest art heist of the twentieth century. This is his family now. But of all this summer's lessons, the cruellest will be telling what is real from what is fake.
