    Danny Dawson lives on a cattle station in the Australian outback. Usually the annual cattle muster excites Danny, but everything is different now. Because Danny's beloved older brother died in an accident last year, and nobody will talk about it. Because his teenage sister is pregnant and won't tell anyone who the father is. Because his mother can't cope with any of it and has hired a wide-eyed English house girl to deal with the family.

    Timber Creek Station is the story of a grieving family, entrenched racism, and the surprising ways one boy—who thought he'd be stuck in one terrible place forever—can take a leap forward.

    Images of the Interactive Book in Action
    Lerner Interactive Books introduce students to knowledge areas in core grade-level curriculum in an engaging format. With titles that span curriculum themes from pre-K - 5th grade, Lerner Interactive Books give readers a digital option for reading that allows them to read, hear, and interact in a way that will engage and motivate them to read more and more often. It's a fast path to deepening students' love of reading and learning.
    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.

    "It offers an exceptionally vivid picture of a fascinating world foreign to most American readers alongside issues mostly avoided in U.S. children's fiction. . . . Immensely likable and utterly convincing, Danny will have readers hoping for the future just as hard as he is. . . . [H]ighly recommended for boys and adventurous readers of all ages."—starred, Kirkus Reviews

    "[A]stoundingly well written and intensely absorbing. Vivid details and Australian slang bring the unique setting of the outback to life. . . . [A] poignant and raw story about prejudice, family, grief, loss, change, and healing."—VOYA
    "British author Lewis' debut is based on her time as the family helper on just such an outback [cattle station]. . . . It is the learning curve of Liz that will engage the reader who is open to understanding a variation of abject intolerance in a remote culture that is perhaps, sadly, not fundamentally different from our own."—Booklist
