A Hundred Types of Hurt

Millard Elliston and Kyra Ridley, both fifteen, are two completely different people from different parts of Australia. Millard is a country boy from Hughenden, Queensland, who wants to take after his dad, a cattle farmer. Kyra is a girl from Wodonga who wishes to become a singing sensation.
When the two end up moving into Melbourne and going to the same school, the both of them are hit by different types of bullies from every direction. And when they finally meet, they find they have some chemistry and work together to hit back at the bullies.
After all, opposites attract. Right?

"About time, Dad!"

It was just the three of us. Me, Dad and little William. Mum died all those years ago, in a car crash, on our way to Wodonga, where we still lived. Not for long, though. Dad just said we were going back to Melbourne.

Life in Camberwell, Melbourne, was perfect. Walking around with my friends along the brilliant streets, gossiping on the latest in celebrity news, giggling about the guys at school.

"I miss my friends in Camberwell. I can't wait to go back to our old house. I wonder if..."

Dad held up a hand to silence me. I've tried many times to prevent such a small action quieting me down, but it somehow doesn't work. Dad always says I get my ability to obey from my Mum. "We're not moving back to our house in Camberwell. It's been bought by another. We're moving to Footscray."

Footscray? What?

I didn't answer. Like my voice box had been taken out, without me feeling it.

That was the start of a horrid new era in my life.
