Two Mates

Melanie Prewett

The true story of the special mateship between two boys who have grown up together in Broome in Australia’s north west. 

Jack is Indigenous and Raf is a non-Indigenous boy who has Spina bifida. The boys share their daily life as they search for hermit crabs, go hunting for barni, fish for salmon, explore the markets, eat satays and dress up as superheroes. The fact that Raf is in a wheelchair is only revealed at the end of the story.
