Overview

Take a trip into a dystopian Far North Queensland with this wildly exciting YA novel by Brisbane author Maree Kimberley I stumbled towards the Meat House, my body shaking with the violence that raged within me, as the realisation of the mistake I had made in coming here rose to the surface of my mind. This was the last place I should be. That thought was crossed by another, even more terrifying. This is exactly where I belong. Asa's running from a troubled past. To a remote outback town, a disappointing father and a fresh start that's already souring. But then the notorious Dirt Circus League arrives. A troupe of outcast teens performing spectacular fight sequences and challenging any who dares to take part. They're ruthless. Menacing. Thrilling. And led by the magnetic Quarter. He's dark, powerful and intensely attractive-and he faces a threat only Asa can see. Will Asa be drawn into the league's mysterious community? And, as she discovers the violent secrets at its heart, will she delve into her own untapped abilities to save herself-and heal those caught in its evil web? Dirt Circus League is a compelling and fast-paced novel about the powerful allure of danger and the battles we face with our demons in a world beyond our control.

'A gripping and intense genre-bender that doesn't pull punches, set in Australia's beautiful but hostile far north where more dangers are lurking than you'd think.' * Sarah Epstein *


'A gripping and intense genre-bender that doesn't pull punches, set in Australia's beautiful but hostile far north where more dangers are lurking than you'd think.' * Sarah Epstein * '[Dirt Circus League] depicts a thrillingly perverse world with a sort of Mad Max feeling but set into the ordinary life of teenage Asa...The plot is gripping and page-turning. Kimberley has built a world unimaginable, and yet placed it into the centre of one girl's (previously) unexceptional experience, with the result that the reader is constantly pulled from the banality of everyday life into a parallel universe where strength, viciousness, passion and force rule.' * Cass Moriarty * 'A fascinating mixture of thriller, coming of age and climate change activism...a gripping and unique story.' * ReadPlus *
