What happens when you mix teenage boys, a fight club and ethnic rivalries? You get war. Romeo Makhlouf knows the rules. Stick with your own kind. Don't dob on your mates or even on your enemies. Respect the family. But even unwritten rules are made for breaking. Fight clubs, first loves and family ties are pushed to the limit in Helen Chebatte's explosive debut novel.
There's something about Bro that has readers running back into the shop asking for something just like it! It's relatable dialogue, characters and themes appeal to a broad range of readers, young teens and above. The challenges Romeo faces as a young male in a Sydney high school are equal parts hopeless and hopeful. (libby)
