"Which street racer really controls the strip? An award-winning YA novel full of fast cars, burn-offs and an unwritten code of loyalty."
Ted Dawe stunned readers with his impressive first novel Thunder Road - winner of the Best First Book Award and Senior Fiction category of the coveted New Zealand Post Childrens and Young Adults Book Awards. His subsequent YA novel K Road was published to warm reviews. Into the River won the 2013 New Zealand Post Book of the Year and caused great controversy over its inclusion of sex scenes and swearing. Ted lives in Auckland, New Zealand, where he teaches English to foreign students.
