'Deadly, unna?' He was always saying that. All the Nungas did, but Dumby more than any of them. Dumby Red and Blacky don't have a lot in common. Dumby's the star of the footy team, he's got a killer smile and the knack with girls, and he's a Nunga. Blacky's a gutless wonder, needs braces, never knows what to say, and he's white. But they're friends... and it could be deadly, unna? This gutsy novel, set in a small coastal town in South Australia is a rites-of-passage story about two boys confronting the depth of racism that exists all around them.

Awesome this book is very good
There was kind of no point to the story and it didn't really catch my attention.. I had to read it for school so I had to read it! So all I know is that this boy loves to play footy, his aboriginal .. He has a big loving family, he learnt things like racism and generally likes to have things his way.. My point of view anyway :)
