Author(s): Jane Naqvi; Alexandra Pitt (Illustrator)


Annie and Jak - mother and wayward son. Jak is playing silly buggers when he steps into a nest of jack jumpers. The first sting in the tale of his life trajectory. Annie believes her destiny was unwittingly ordained through her father's deception, long ago, in the wake of Mahatma Gandhi's assassination. Separate, violent events also sabotage their lives and each is beset by guilt. They hide from the world and each other for seven years, Jak in India seeking redemption, Annie in Tasmania harvesting resentment. Unpredictable, like jack jumpers. When Jak rings Annie about a plan, born from his childhood dream to sculpt a café in the abandoned granite quarry on Tasmania's Freycinet Peninsula, she realizes he needs her. Will she exonerate and assist him? Or destroy him?
