Description - Swerve by Phillip Gwynne

Hugh is 16. He loves cello, he's a closet car fanatic, and he has no luck with girls. When his grandfather, Poppy, asks him to go on one last road trip to Uluru in his 1970 Holden HG Monaro GTS 350 V8, Hugh decides, for once in his life, to do the unexpected. Little does he know that Poppy has an ulterior motive . . . one that would take both their lives in a direction they never expected . . .

One of the country's finest young cellists, 16 year-old Hugh Twycross has a very bright future. A future that has been mapped out by his parents, his teachers, by everybody, it seems, except Hugh Twycross.

Hugh has a secret, though- he loves cars and he loves car racing. When his newly discovered grandfather, Poppy, asks him to go on a road trip to Uluru in his 1970 Holden HT Monaro, Hugh decides, for once in his life, to do the unexpected.

As they embark on a journey into the vast and fierce landscape of the Australian interior, Hugh discovers that Poppy has a secret that will unravel both their lives and take them in a direction they never expected.
