In the End

In the end cover.

by Mal Peet, illustrations by Andrew Burdan

When Billy was a young man in 1912, he saw his town torn apart by strikers and strike breakers as workers fought for their rights in the
goldmining town of Waihī. Years later, Billy is fighting in the trenches in Europe and has become friends with another Waihī man, Don. But Don’s memories of the strike are very different from Billy’s. In a graphic novel format that is set during both wars, dramatic events lead to a revelation that changes the way Billy and Don think about “sides”.
