Now this was a crazy, interesting book. Very well-written, with unique and strange characters.<br/><br/>Friday's mother passes away, leaving her with a grandfather she can't connect with, a legacy of stories that may or may not be true, and an insatiable wanderlust. She hooks up with a gang of street kids, and even though she is scared of a deeper connection, she is desperate to belong to something. The charismatic Arden adopts her into the gang and Friday slowly realizes the dangers both of being alone - and of getting too close.
Seventeen-year-old Friday Brown is on the run -- running to escape memories of her mother and of the family curse. And of a grandfather who'd like her to stay. She's lost, alone and afraid. Silence, a street kid, finds Friday and she joins him in a gang led by beautiful, charismatic Arden. When Silence is involved in a crime, the gang escapes to a ghost town in the outback. In Murungal Creek, the town of never leaving, Friday must face the ghosts of her past. She will learn that sometimes you have to stay to finish what you started -- and often, before you can find out who you are, you have to become someone you were never meant to be.
