The night the first wild child was captured, I was woken from my sleep by the sound of car doors slamming. I opened my eyes; lights were flashing across the ceiling of my bedroom. I sat up at once, and there, holding the lace curtain of my window, was my sister Julia. "They've caught one," I whispered. "Haven't they?" She took her hand from the curtain and turned away. "They get us all, sooner or later," she said. Then she vanished into the darkness of the hall. But who could live with wild children and not be affected? And what changes might their dark secrets bring about in the lives of others? This award-winning novel was described as 'a superb representation of contemporary Australian writing' by the SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL (USA).
