Black magic, big waves and mad Aussie expats.

In Indonesia, Penny is drifting, partying, hanging out a thousand miles away from claustrophobic Perth and her career-minded boyfriend. But things take a dangerous turn when she goes to work at Shane’s Sumatran Oasis.

Caught up in the hostility directed at Shane, and flirting and surfing with the hell-man Matt, Penny soon finds herself swept into a world where two very different cultures must collide.

'A beautifully observed novel with a strong sense of place about a young Australian abroad witnessing a culture and caught up in events she only half understands.' - 2014 City of Fremantle T.A.G. Hungerford Judges' Report
