The Fighting Stingrays

Simon Mitchell SHOP:9780143784104

What would you do if you were told your best friend is now the enemy?

Charlie, Masa and Alf are best mates – loyal and adventurous. They’re the Fighting Stingrays.

In between school, swimming and fishing on idyllic Thursday Island, they have a ripper time role-playing bombing missions and other war games. But when Japan enters the Second World War, the Fighting Stingrays are told that one of their own is now the real-life enemy. Drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the Torres Strait, their friendship and loyalties are tested as the threat of invasion looms closer.

 

Suitable for ages 11+. 

Soft cover, 288 pages.
