Waiting on Wednesday: This is How We Change the Ending

Wednesday, 29 May 2019

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly prompt hosted by Breaking the Spine where the participants tell their readers about an upcoming release they are looking forward to. This week I've picked This is How We Change the Ending, the latest YA novel released by prolific Aussie author Vikki Wakefield.

I have questions I’ve never asked. Worries I’ve never shared. Thoughts that circle and collide and die screaming because they never make it outside my head. Stuff like that, if you let it go—it’s a survival risk.

Sixteen-year-old Nate McKee is doing his best to be invisible. He’s worried about a lot of things—how his dad treats Nance and his twin half-brothers; the hydro crop in his bedroom; his reckless friend, Merrick. Nate hangs out at the local youth centre and fills his notebooks with things he can’t say.

But when some of his pages are stolen, and his words are graffitied at the centre, Nate realises he has allies. He might be able to make a difference, change his life, and claim his future. Or can he?

This is How We Change the Ending is raw and real, funny and heartbreaking—a story about what it takes to fight back when you’re not a hero.

New books on the #LoveOzYA scene are always an exciting addition to my shelves, and Vikki Wakefield's novels always speak straight to the themes of family, belonging and class relationships.

Releasing 3rd September 2019 by Text Publishing
