"It has been great getting to learn about all the different aspects of the Indigenous Australian culture. I definitely learnt new things and it was fantastic to read stories from a first person perspective. My favourite aspect of the book was the way it was written, many short stories made it really interesting, engaging and easy to keep up with. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more and expand their knowledge on Aboriginal culture and history. It was emotional and raw at times, hilarious and very knowledgeable. It has given me a new perspective and appreciation on many things to do with Aboriginal culture."
