I adored Vikki Wakefield's gritty debut All I Ever Wanted last year, so of course, I was thrilled to find out her second novel is due out in August!
Friday Brown - Vikki Wakefield
August 22, 2012
From Text: Seventeen-year-old Friday Brown is on the run—running to escape memories of her mother and of the family curse. And of a grandfather who’d like her to stay. She’s lost, alone and afraid. Silence, a street kid, finds Friday and she joins him in a gang led by beautiful, charismatic Arden.
When Silence is involved in a crime, the gang escapes to a ghost town in the outback. In Murungal Creek, the town of never leaving, Friday must face the ghosts of her past. She will learn that sometimes you have to stay to finish what you started—and often, before you can find out who you are, you have to become someone you were never meant to be.
Vikki will be appearing at the Melbourne Writers Festival this year - check out their website for more information.
