Lou and Sibylla are the kind of people I’d want as friends.
This book is funny, it’s smart, it’s a snick in the heart. It’s beautifully written. Read it. And come to the launch to celebrate that a book like this is in the world.
Life? It’s simple: be true to yourself.
The tricky part is finding out exactly who you are…
“In the holidays before the dreaded term at Crowthorne Grammar’s outdoor education camp two things out of the ordinary happened.
A picture of me was plastered all over a twenty-metre billboard.
And I kissed Ben Capaldi.”
Boarding for a term in the wilderness, sixteen-year-old Sibylla expects the gruesome outdoor education program – but friendship complications, and love that goes wrong? They’re extra-curricula.
Enter Lou from Six Impossible Things – the reluctant new girl for this term in the great outdoors. Fragile behind an implacable mask, she is grieving a death that occurred almost a year ago. Despite herself, Lou becomes intrigued by the unfolding drama between her housemates Sibylla and Holly, and has to decide whether to end her self-imposed detachment and join the fray.
And as Sibylla confronts a tangle of betrayal, she needs to renegotiate everything she thought she knew about surviving in the wild.
A story about first love, friendship and NOT fitting in.
It’s no secret how much I loved Six Impossible Things (I read it more than six times). And I have just as much love for Wildlife.
