The story is set in Western Australia. The spelling and grammatical style are typically ‘Australian’. The Australian terms are explained at the end of the book. Western Australia experienced a financial boom due to the mining industries, and oil exploration. Consequently, the tradesmen and blue collar workers now earn high salaries and out spend the established rich. Most high schools in Perth are private where parents buy their children’s education.
The dramatically increased wages now earned by tradesmen means buys a place for their children in the elite schools usually reserved for the children of a higher socio economic class. The reader is given a ring side seat to the ensuing drama as the socio economic lines invert.
