AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We're sitting there with matching milkshakes, Sasha and me, and somehow, things aren't going like I always thought they would. We're face to face under 24-hour fluorescents with the thoroughly unromantic buzz of aircon in our ears and endless flabby wedges of seated trucker's butt as our only visual stimulus.

'In a dead-end town like Barwen a girl only to be a little different to feel like a freak. And Clancy, a typical sixteen-year-old misfit with a moderately dysfunctional family, a genuine interest in Nature Club and a major crush on the local hot girl, is packing a capital F.

'As the summer begins, Clancy's dad is involved in a road smash that kills two local teenagers. While the family is dealing with the reaction of a hostile town, Clancy meets someone who could possibly—at last—become a friend. Not only that, the unattainable Sasha starts to show what may be a romantic interest.

'In short, this is the summer when Clancy has to figure out who the hell she is.' (Publication summary)
