Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton


Boys Swallows Universe takes you deep inside 1980’s Brisbane underworld.
Eli and August Bell are remarkable boys, with knowledge and courage well beyond their years. Dalton beautifully contrasts what is an incredibly difficult and violent upbringing with an overwhelming sense of loyalty and love for family and friends. Each character is wonderfully thought out, all with their own unique adversities to overcome.

A crime novel where the ‘bad guys’ are actually the good guys, and in the end, the good guys will always win.

This book is truly gripping, one I really didn’t want to end. My favourite book of 2018!
