Overview

At seventeen, Jacklin Bates is all grown up. She's dropped out of school. She's living with her runaway sister, Trudy, and she's in secret, obsessive love with Luke, who doesn't love her back. She's stuck in Mobius-a dying town with the macabre suicide forest its only attraction-stuck working in the roadhouse and babysitting her boss's demented father. A stranger sets up camp in the forest and the boy next door returns; Jack's father moves into the shed and her mother steps up her campaign to punish Jack for leaving, too. Trudy's brilliant fac?ade is cracking and Jack's only friend, Astrid, has done something unforgivable. Jack is losing everything, including her mind. As she struggles to hold onto the life she thought she wanted, Jack learns that growing up is complicated-and love might be the biggest mystery of all.

Reviews

'This is one of the most memorable YA books I've ever read. Original, real, startling and beautiful.' Cath Crowley, author of Graffiti Moon, on Friday Brown 'With a heart-swelling conclusion, Wakefield's novel contains characters so palpable you can imagine passing them in the street.' Weekend Australian on Friday Brown 'Vikki Wakefield's second novel is equally as intense as All I Ever Wanted, and equally as gritty; there's just more: more emotion, more power, and more conflict...I hope it finds its way into many teenagers' hands.' ReadPlus on Friday Brown 'Set against an Australian landscape brimming with the gothic, and full of elegiac beauty and intelligent insights into the human mind, this is a stunning contribution to young adult fiction, and one that will rate as highly memorable among both mature young-adult readers and adults.' Australian Bookseller & Publisher on Friday Brown 'A tense, multilayered tale about loyalty, memory and survival.' Kirkus Reviews on Friday Brown 'Vikki Wakefield's second novel is as gripping as her debut book, All I Ever Wanted and invites comparison with Sonya Hartnett's All My Dangerous Friends with its psychological force and gothic characters.' -- Ernie Tucker, CBCA NSW '[Friday Brown] will haunt you long after you've turned the last page. Vikki Wakefield weaves the fantastical and the gritty into a harrowing, heartbreaking, intensely suspenseful story that's as dangerous and starkly gorgeous as the Australian outback. It will break your heart then put the pieces back together in a new way. I absolutely loved this book.' Libba Bray, author of The Diviners, on Friday Brown 'Wakefield has captured small-town life perfectly. There is the stifling sense of everyone knowing everyone, but also the boredom that comes from being a teenager with nowhere to go. In these claustrophobic conditions, she explores love, death and identity.' Books + Publishing

'Wakefield has captured small-town life perfectly. There is the stifling sense of everyone knowing everyone, but also the boredom that comes from being a teenager with nowhere to go. In these claustrophobic conditions, she explores love, death and identity.' Books + Publishing 'A gritty, heartfelt read for teens and adult readers alike.' Readings 'Inbetween Days is Australian YA gothic. It's at times bleak and tender, with touches of romance threaded with heartache, all playing out in a town that's dead and dying. As anyone who has read a Vikki Wakefield novel knows, it's near impossible to completely summarise her stories; save to say it's another 'must-read' from one of Australia's best young adult authors writing today.' Alpha Reader 'Intense and engaging...Highly recommended.' Reading Time
