"Delightful, laugh-out-loud funny and unforgettable. I love this book."
Toni Jordan, author of Addition

"One of the sought-after books of the year."
The Herald Sun

"What sets this down-home comedy apart from the norm is how wonderfully well it is written. O’Reilly is funny and touching by turns and her style has a spare intelligence."
The Daily Mail

"Delightful, laugh-out-loud funny and unforgettable. I love this book." - Toni Jordan, author of Addition.

Single mother and dreamer Loretta Boskovic lives in Gunapan, a town lost in the scrubby Australian bush. She has fantasies about dumping her two kids in the orphanage and riding off on a Harley with her dream lover. Her best pal is a crusty old junk man called Norm. She needs a lawnmower; he gives her two goats called Terror and Panic. Loretta’s a self-dubbed ‘old scrag’, but she’s got a big heart and a strong sense of injustice. So, when the government threatens to close down Gunapan’s primary school, and there’s a whiff of corruption wafting through the corridors of the local council, Loretta stirs into action. She may be short of money, influence and a fully functioning car, but she has loyal friends. Together they can organise protests, supermarket sausage sizzles, a tour of the abattoir – whatever it takes to hold on to the scrap of world that is home.
