The Keeper

Author: Rosanne Hawke



Get hooked by this action-packed adventure from Rosanne Hawke – now back in print!

Joel Billings wants a father more than anything. But should he be careful what he wishes for?

Twelve-year-old Joel hasn’t had it easy – the school bully picks on him and his parents abandoned him long ago. He lives with his over-protective gran, who won’t even let him enter a fishing competition. Joel reckons having a dad would solve all his problems, so he advertises for one in the newspaper.

When a tattooed, long-haired biker named Dev Eagle answers the ad, Joel’s world is turned upside down. But Dev is not the only new stranger in town – someone from Joel’s past is back to haunt him.

This ripping book is the first in a trilogy for middle-reader boys, which continues with Sailmaker and Killer Ute
