John and Dom is a new verse novel by Sally Murphy, author of Pearl, which won the children's book category of the Australian Indie Book Award in 2009. John considers himself the ordinary one in his group of friends; clever, cool Dom is his best friend and together they make fun of the school bully. But when Dom falls sick with cancer, John's world falls apart. He and his friends are confused and angry. Eventually, though, they find ways to talk to Dom, and use humour to say the things that adults can't; they even find support and understanding from an unlikely source - the school bully. A sensitive, realistic look at issues of childhood illness and schoolyard bullying from a thoughtful writer.
