Praise For Friday Never Leaving…
"The themes and subject matter may be dark…but this is far from being a novel without hope."
-Australian Book Review
"Full of elegiac beauty and intelligent insights…this is a stunning contribution to young-adult fiction."
"Wakefield’s characters are one of the strengths of this young adult novel. They are diverse, compelling, multi-dimensional, loveable, despicable….believable."
-Dominion Post Weekend (Australia)
"Deeply satisfying and surprisingly upbeat."
"This is a pull-no-punches story about learning the truth and growing up, full of the preciousness of friendship and love."
-Herald Sun (Australia)
"Mesmerizing, embroidered with terrifying webs of intrigue and haunted by ghosts."
-Magpies Magazine (Australia)
*Australian author Wakefield spins a tense, multilayered tale about loyalty, memory and survival... Imagery—a dust-filled ghost town, harrowing dreams of drowning—is vivid and evocative, and Friday’s changing sense of herself and her relationship to her mother’s legacy give the story another layer of depth.
Lyrical, suspenseful and haunting.
