Description

Sixteen-year-old Lucy Hart has been counting the days till she can get the hell out of Digger's Landing - a small Queensland fishing hamlet home to fifteen families, a posse of mongrel dogs, and Parkers Corner Store (no apostrophe and nowhere near a corner). But just like the tides Lucy's luck is on the turn, and as graduation nears her escape plans begin to falter; her best friend, Polly, is dropping out of school to help pay the bills, and Tom has been shipped off to boarding school, away from the flotsam of this place. And then there's Lucy's nightlife, which is filled with dreams that just don't seem to belong to her at all ...When the fish stop biting, like they did when her mum was still around, Lucy realises she isn't the only one with a secret. beautifully written ...perfectly captures the space between childhood and independence where dreams can be made or broken. - BOOKS+PUBLISHING 'A genuine, lived, heartfelt story of a teenage girl's awakening to the world of adults which raises two burning questions: what led to her mother's death, and does her father care? I loved this book.' Gary Crew, bestselling author of STRANGE OBJECTS and THE WATERTOWER
