A great read and strong debut novel by Australian author Helen Chebatte that will best appeal to teenage boys 14 and up and teen reading groups.
Nov 11, Braiden rated it really liked it Shelves: aussie-ya , our-dear-aussies. A straightforward, contemporary novel of different racial groups colliding in the school yard, resulting in a fight club and unexpected tragedies.
Bro speaks at a level intended for easy consumption. Jul 15, Steph rated it really liked it Shelves: read , nbhs.
A gritty read, with themes as diverse as identity, loss and the power of peer pressure. This is a fairly slim volume, with lots of dialogue, and a familiar setting so I'll be recommending this to reluctant readers who require a text suitable for NCEA.

A very important take on the racial hostilities between high school boys in Australia, Bro looks into the life of Romeo, a half-Australian half-Lebanese year 10 boy who just wants to get through school and get the girl.
But gossip is a nasty part of the high school experience, and before he knows it, Romeo is in the spotlight, caught in a war against the Aussie kids.
There's a choice to make, and Romeo isn't making any of the right ones.

Chebatte makes a poignant point about how in the end, we are all just people, and the day-to-day cultural differences don't affect that everyone can get along when we aren't being identified as our heritage and stereotypes.
Dec 26, Libby Armstrong rated it really liked it Shelves: beachside-bookshop-favs. I hope we don't have to wait long for Helen Chebatte's next novel.
Her use of a school boy fight club as her underlying plot enables her to skilfully interweave a number of themes - friendship, racial rivalry and peer pressure - into a modern day morality tale, without exactly clubbing you over the head with it.

Bro is Helen Chebatte's debut novel. Set in Western Sydney, the story revolves around Romeo Makhlouf, a sixteen year old boy attending a Christian boys high school.
He lives with his dad and grandmother. His mother died of cancer five years ago and since then his father's moods have been up and down, creating a tense relationship between them.
When he's challenged by an Aussie boy at school, their fight sets off a train of events that leads to disaster.
The main focus of Bro is identity a Bro is Helen Chebatte's debut novel. The main focus of Bro is identity and what that means to different people, in this case teenage boys and their families.
Romeo's father is Lebanese, his mother was Australian, and Romeo was born here. He struggles throughout the book to understand who he really is.
His friendship group at school have pride in being Lebanese but he's often reminded of his mother's nationality and the fact that he was born here and takes part in Aussie ways of living as well as Lebanese.
There's a strong emphasis on family and respect, and his best friend, Diz, is more like a brother than a mate. Romeo describes the four main groups of boys at his school, including his group, the Lebanese, the Islanders, the Asians, and the Aussies.
Each have their own areas and ways they interact with each other. They have unwritten codes of how they are to deal with issues, with fights, and how things should be done.
It was easy to feel for Romeo who doesn't want to be pressured into fighting by his peer group, but feels like he has to conform.
The ending is sad yet hopeful, and the resolution between Romeo and his father was mirrored in his interactions with boys at school.
Bro is an excellent novel, highlighting issues schools are facing. It is a great read for high school students as well as teachers and parents.
Thank you to Hardie Grant Egmont for my review copy. Feb 29, Debra Tidball rated it really liked it.

Using first person narration, Chebatte takes the reader behind the bravado of the main character, Lebanese Australian teenager Romeo, to expose his vulnerabilities.
Set in a multicultural school Romeo is caught up in tensions that escalate after he starts dating a girl, and which end disastrously.
With themes that include identity, belonging, friendship, loyalty, peer pressure, racism, grief, forgiveness and redemption 'Bro' certainly packs a punch!
Despite a lot of talk about fight club, there are actually only three fight scenes, each rendered effectively without too much gore and horror, however I was moved to tears at the outcome of the final fight, a testament to how engaged I was with the likeable characters.
The thing that touched me the most about 'Bro' is the way in which Chebatte renders grief - the palpable way it hangs over Romeo's household after the death of his mother, and the way it affects each of the characters in the end.
The message about us all being Aussies despite our racial backgrounds is not so subtle, however in the shadow of the Cronulla riots, this is a message for our generation, and the refreshingly diverse voice in Aussie YA fiction is timely.
It is a pleasantly light read, dominated by dialogue and would be perfect as a middle school text.

The book has a pretty powerful message and I was shocked when I realised the author is a woman, she has a very strong male voice. My brother was involved in a fight club when he was in school so I've passed this one on to him and so far he's enjoying it.

Helen Chebatte offers a slice of Aussie school life that those of us who grew up here, or have worked as teachers can relate to, and gives a glimpse into the rivalries that exist among ethnic groups in an all boys' high school.

This isn't really going to be a review of sorts more just a comment. I cried at the end of this book like full on tears.
It was so sad. It had an amazing message and I am getting sad inside just thinking about it. I finished it pretty quickly though so my only complaints would be to make it longer.
Jun 11, Michele Barnes rated it really liked it Shelves: p-mccleod. Have been thinking about this book for a few days. I liked the beginning but just didn't like the 'convenience' of the ending.
I can understand the author wanting a positive outcome but for me it didn't seem real and it happened too quickly but it's what you would want to happen after such tragedy.

I wasn't sure I was going to like Bro but Chebatte definitely surprised me. It isn't a long book but it one that is important as it talks about trying to fit in when people class you as different on both sides, and the pressure of being loyal to your family roots, all with a delightfully Australian feel.
It is, I'll admit, very Australian. One could say too Australian, but I have heard teenage boys speak to one another and I wasn't sure I was going to like Bro but Chebatte definitely surprised me.
One could say too Australian, but I have heard teenage boys speak to one another and aside from the lack of swearing, it sounds like this for the most part so many bros!
It takes some getting used to but I quite liked the tone of voice Chebatte used, especially how Julian Maroun narrated, it felt very real; you really get the sense of these teenage boys who are trying to be cooler and tougher than they actually are and the tired effort the adults are going to to try and help them Chebatte uses the male point of view quite well, demonstrating the conflicts between the races at school, girl trouble, and trying to find where you belong, something which reminded me of Ayoub's Hate is Such a Strong Word for the female perspective.
I liked Romeo as a narrator, I also liked that Chebatte balanced him but not too evenly. He has some sensibilities but he is still a young boy with wild ideas and a feeling of invincibility.
You clearly understand his conflict about who he is and whether he is Lebanese or Australian, and how even though he was born here he still doesn't feel like he belongs.
This conflict drives his decisions and affects the decisions he makes, right or wrong they may be. I was apprehensive about this book, I genuinely thought I wouldn't like it but I'm glad I read it.
It tells the story of the danger of boys and their masculinity, peer pressure, "national pride", racism, and trying to belong.
It's a book people should read about feeling different, and the consequences of male pride. Apr 29, Brydie Wright rated it it was amazing.
This is one of those novels that had me from the 'get go'. It's real and its engaging. It was great to read a YA fiction told from a male protagonist's perspective, devoid of the neuroses that often characterises books written for this age group.
I warmed to Romeo and I loved that he was an incredibly relatable kid, telling his story from the POV of an Aussie teen of partial Lebanese origin.
I've never read a book told from the perspective of a Lebanese Australian boy and I guess this is the poi This is one of those novels that had me from the 'get go'.
I've never read a book told from the perspective of a Lebanese Australian boy and I guess this is the point. How often do we hear stories told through the eyes of racial groups other than white Australian and how often is the Anglo-Aussie positioned as 'the other'?
Very interesting and a captivating portrayal from debut novellist, Chebatte. Strong themes of inter-racial tension are balanced with a hero of integrity, depth and bravery and a convincing friendship that underpins the narrative and does not grate the way many YA BFF stories tend to.

The message of this book was so profound. All the way through, you could identify how race and heritage separated the school.
Romeo constantly addressed people via their race throughout the novel which just further shows how ethnicity is a barrier in the school.
Even though the end was a little bit extreme, it was fully realistic. Diz died because of that fight and it's upsetting how something of such value has to occur in order for people to realise their mistakes.
I really enjoyed reading this The message of this book was so profound. I really enjoyed reading this book because it gave me perspective on how other schools treat people differently and made me grateful be in mine.
Jun 17, Bule rated it really liked it. This was awesome. I loved the realistic way Chebatte portrayed the tension between the two classes.
Romeo is a heart-felt character who tries to do the right thing. It was such a sad ending but I feel it was necessary to add meaning to the message the author was trying to convey about violence not solving very much.
The ending is both heart breaking, redemptive and hopeful in the introduction of new beginnings for Romeo. Jun 26, C rated it really liked it Shelves: quick-reads , contemporary , australia , loveozya , adorable-friendship , squad-goals , young-adult , middle-eastern-all , lebanese.
I may be biased because of how Lebanese the protagonist was, but I really enjoyed this one. Not to mention the narrator of the audiobook was brilliant.
Although I am mad at the ending because it hurt my heart so much, I can't deny that this wasn't a great and realistic book showcasing the racism in Australia.
I don't know if this book is for everyone, though. Mar 13, Sue rated it really liked it. Quick, easy read with some weighty themes, but did feel uncomfortable about the slang terms for each of the groups of races.
However, can see that they are used as I have heard them used at my daughter's multicultural school. Liked the exploration of violence begets violence and of course the name of the main character, Romeo.
Jan 31, Jaz rated it it was ok Shelves: contemporary , review-copy , standalone , aussie. Firstly, thanks to Hardie Grant Egmont for this review copy.
Review originally posted at Fiction in Fiction in Fiction 2. On one hand I thought it could be an accurate depiction of teenage high school life and the racial issues we are STILL dealing with in Australia.
On the other hand I felt it was really stupid to be so largely centred on a fight club. Poor kid gets stuck in a lot of dilemmas — do the right thing or defend his bros?
I definitely felt bad for him because he gets dragged into so much shit by his friends, the other racial groups at school, and even runs into girl problems.
But Romes my man, get a spine and learn to speak up for yourself. Yeah I get it — high school equals peer pressure. Which is a serious problem and it sucks.
He always manages to say the right thing for the situation, has a smile or a joke for you and is the kind of best friend I wish I had.
Diz is also obsessed with Oprah. What the actual eff? The relationship I really appreciated was the one between Romeo and his grandmother.
If he ever snapped at her he apologised and I could just see that he really loved her - no need to hide it. Sooooo the romance. It was cute.
Kind of. She was indecisive again is this me being too old to understand high school drama? I just… Wow cannot even. I really needed more character development and dimension on her part.
That's the main plot. The whole idea of a fight club is stupid but these guys have race against race. Like a Leb versus an Ozzie. Self-raising flour was more expensive and considered a novelty - consumers bought plain flour direct from the miller and self-raising flour was only sold into independent grocers.
In a bid to make self-raising flour more popular among the general public, the company staged a series of exhibitions in the early s where freshly baked scones, pastries and cakes were sold for a shilling to visitors.
These were so popular that people demanded to have copies of the recipes so that they could bake the dishes at home. As a result, a free recipe book was produced and handed out at the exhibitions as well as door to door.
