Summary
In 15 years, Egan Tucker has spoken to no one but his mother. Escaping from an abusive husband, Moana (Moma) took baby Ethan to live in the Coromandel bush. For 15 years, Moma taught Egan to survive, and instilled in him her code for a good life. A chance meeting with a DOC deer culler (JT) while out hunting, results in Ethan finding his first friend. And when Moma goes to get supplies one day and never returns, Ethan decides to head to Auckland to get help from his mother's friend and also to try and find JT. But Egan finds that survival amongst the streetkids of Auckland is nothing like living in the bush and he is unprepared for the tragedy that awaits
