Friday BrownBy Vikki Wakefield
Friday Brown has run away from home at seventeen years of age. Her mother has just died and left her in the care of her grandfather who she had not met before her mother became ill. She heads for the city where she is taken under the wing of Silence, a street kid, and joins a group of young people squatting in an old building. Arden, the self appointed leader of the gang takes them to a ghost town in the outback after a fire in the building where they were living. There each of them has to do whatever they can to try and survive.
"When I read Vikki Wakefield's first book All I Ever Wanted I was blown away. It was some of the best young adult fiction I had read and one of the best books generally I had read in a long time. I recommend it for anyone from mid teens up.
Her next book does not disappoint. I turned pages urging Friday to stop and do something different until the devastating end. The nuances of all the characters in the book are so developed that you get such a sense of their personalities and the relationships between them. It left an indelible impression on me". Annie, Project Officer, TBBC
