"Sixteen can be a tough time. And it's almost unmanageable for a wise-cracking boy whose temper is white-hot. As a consequence he is sentenced to a time-out with his reclusive grandfather in a primitive shack in the Tasmanian forest. There is little to do except chop wood and watch the red-eyed wallabies gather at dusk. They are an unlikely couple: a taciturn old man who prefers the simple life, and a volatile boy addicted to the technology of the 21st century and yet a bond blossoms between them. But denied access to much he desires, and feeling provoked by a local cop cynical of city folk, the boy's frustration grows. And when he encounters situations he can't control anything could happen ..."--Provided by publisher.

Die Sache mit Kiffo und mir by Barry Jonsberg ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Wenn die Fantasie durchbrennt: Die intelligente Calma Harrisson und der von allen als dumm und asozial verschriene Kiffo verbindet eine tiefe Freundschaft. Als sie in der 9. Klasse eine neue Englischlehrerin erhalten, die wegen ihres gefürchteten Unterrichtsstils nur der Pitbull genannt wird, verstricken sie sich in allerhand abenteuerlich anmutende Annahmen. Sie vermuten, dass die verhasste Lehrerin mit Drogen handelt und stellen ihr nach. Ihre Untersuchungen enden in einem grossen Desaster, denn die beiden konstruieren eher aus der Fantasie ihre Geschichte, als dass sie sich an Fakten halten. Der aus der Sicht von Calma in der Ich-Form und in rasantem Tempo geschriebene Roman persifliert das Schulleben und eine von Telenovelas geprägte Welt. Ein eigenwilliger Roman, dessen Humor manchmal witzig ist, manchmal aber auch bitterböse. Ab 14 Jahren, gut, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser.
