AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Six by Karen Tayleur takes the reader into the lives of six teenagers on the brink of adulthood. The story begins where it ends, in the aftermath of a terrible car accident. But something else is lurking behind the apparently normal lives of these Year 12 students. Five of them have found a body in the woods during the summer. When they report it anonymously, the discovery has implications for all of them.

'Relationships are developing and changing. All of the characters are facing the pressures of Year 12 and the spectre of the future. All of them have secrets and the way in which these are revealed is one of the many engaging features of this novel.'  (Publication summary)
