Gracey returns home during school holidays from her Brisbane boarding school, and her brother Dougy discovers bones in a building site that are from an old Aboriginal massacre. Gracey researches and learns the circumstances around the massacre, and along the way questions her identity and her family relationships, especially after her mother dies of lung cancer and her brother commits suicide in jail.

As a sequel to Dougy, we pick up on the life of Gracey who is now a successful student at a Brisbane boarding school. There is much excitement and media interest when Dougy finds some old bones. It seems this is evidence of a massacre and different groups interpret the discovery to suit their own ends. A great read.

I really enjoyed this continuing story of Dougy and Gracey and their experiences as Aboriginals in white Australia. Will find the last one in the series to read.

I read it for school but I didn't find it boring but intriguing because it gave an insight to something that most people don't know about.

Carry on of Dougy. It also has major storey line problems where it does not flow.
