Publisher Description

Dogleg Bay is one big retirement home; the richest man in town - the funeral director - drives a hotted-up hearse. Hunter Vettori is thirteen, and longs to catch a record-breaking mulloway, leave Dogleg Bay, and become bigger then Rexy Hunt. On the way, maybe he'll get to kiss a girl (there's only two to choose from and they're twins), save his mum from getting a really bad tatt and find out if Target really has a section called Christian Smart Casual. But, above all, Hunter wants his father back. Jetty Rats is a fast, funny, insightful and moving novel that will make you laugh out loud and perhaps want to go fishing!
