Description - By the River by Steven Herrick

HONOUR BOOK: CBCA Book of the Year, Older Readers, 2005

The big river rolls past our town, takes a slow look and rolls away.

Life for Harry means swimming in Pearce Swamp, eating chunks of watermelon with his brother and his dad, surviving schoolyard battles, and racing through butterflies in Cowpers Paddock. In his town there's Linda, who brings him the sweetest-ever orange cake, and Johnny, whose lightning fists draw blood in a blur, and there's a mystery that Harry needs to solve before he can find a way out

By the River is about the feeling the undercurrents, finding solid ground and knowing when to make a leap.

Steven Herrick writes straight from the heart.
