Pride: Bridgeover Sundown
It is 2027, and Glen Steele is struggling with a family tradition that boys of his family are men at 17. Glen borrows his sister's car
and takes off on the Outback Highway, but his road trip soon turns into something stranger than anyone could have imagined.
This is a good book for ANZAC Day reading. I really wanted to name it "The Sundowners" but there is already a famous book of that title, so I went for something equally apt if a bit less catchy.
The PRIDE of the title is both the car Glen borrows (a Bradman Pride with annoying nanny-state qualities) and also the Steele family pride which Glen feels he is letting down through the fault of Modern Times. Bridgeover is a ghost town that is, and is not... Sundowner is another. As the story has it;
'Bridgeover's the one you come in by, and Sundowner's where you end up.'
