      Ava has just landed a job as a reporter in Gubinge, a tiny tropical town in Australia's north.Gubinge has a way of getting under the skin. Ava is hooked on the thrill of going hand-to-hand with barramundi, awed by country, and stunned by pindan sunsets. But a bitter collision between a native title group and a Japanese-owned uranium mining company is ripping the community in half.From the rodeos and fishing holes of northern Australia, to the dazzling streets of night-time Tokyo, Ava is swept in pursuit of the story. Will Gerro Blue destroy Burrika country? Or will a uranium mine lift its people from poverty? And can Ava hold on to her principles if she gives in to her desire for Noah, the local Burrika boss?

              Would love the opportunity to read and provide an honest review. I am an avid reader and provide reviews on books I have read on my social media accounts. This book is probably not one I would have picked up and read so to be given the chance to go outside my normal genres would be great!
