AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A guy who howls. A girl on a mission to forget.

'In the suburb of Shyness, where the sun doesn't rise and the border crackles with a strange energy, Wolfboy meets a stranger at the Diabetic Hotel. She tells him her name is Wildgirl, and she dares him to be her guide through the endless night.

'But then they are mugged by the sugar-crazed Kidds. And what plays out is moving, reckless ... dangerous. There are things that can only be said in the dark. And one long night is time enough to change your life.' (From the publisher's website.)
