Main character, seventeen-year-old Jacklin Bates, lives with her sister on the outskirts of their small country town. She’s dropped out of high school, is in love with a boy who doesn’t care for her, and is caught in between being a teenager and an adult. As she struggles to hold onto the life she thought she wanted, she learns that growing up is complicated. A wonderful read for a mature reader, this book captures the young adult market perfectly and sets the scene brilliantly for what it is like to grow up in a small Australian country town.
