Penguin Group Australia, Aug 4, 2008 - Juvenile Fiction - 228 pages
There was an air of suspended violence around him, like an open fox trap or a black cloud. With Nile, danger and ecstasy were the same beautiful thing...
Danny Clarke's best friend, Nile, is back in town. Having him around was a wild ride - the one thing worth living for in their vindictive, small-minded town. But after what Nile did, nothing can be the same...
Now that everyone in town wants Nile to disppear, Danny will need to choose sides. But which side is worse? And when he's pushed to the edge, what is Danny capable of? What are any of us capable of?
A stunning, frighteningly real debut novel from a talented new voice.
