Fourteen-year-old Kenny's dad has just died, and now Kenny must become the breadwinner. "Be careful going through the flatlands," his mother warns him. "Don't stop for anyone." But Kenny does stop, and what happens next will define the man he becomes. These stories, which track the lives of Kenny, his family, and his friends over decades, are about the place where adolescence collides with adulthood. The second story involves Kenny's two daughters, who find they must rely on each other despite their differences. The third story is a snapshot of a school bully with a secret; years later, two of her victims meet her in a shop and are forced to reevaluate their feelings about her. In Wolf on the Fold, Judith Clarke paints the lives of her characters with skill and compassion, qualities that have made her one of Australia's leading writers in the young adult genre.
