AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Kid Kabula is a risk-taker, but when he decides to ride his bike at top speed through the centre of the local mall, he doesn't realise just exactly how dangerous that's going to be. And when Fats Charvetto, leader of the hairiest, dirtiest and meanest bikie gang in town, wants to know exactly who knocked him flying into a pet shop pond display, it's Stevie Goodes, local refundables collector, who dobs in the Kid. Look out, Victory Gardens - a turf war is starting, but Stevie and the Kid will be dodgin' bikies and keepinitreal for as long as it takes. ' (Publication summary)
