‘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.

@allayne_webster @CharlieArchbold It’s ‘The Brians’ not the brains so I don’t reckon you qualify unless you look like this. 🤣 https://t.co/XrSc31skeK

@CharlieArchbold The Brians sounds like a band from Brighton. 🤣

I don’t watch much TV but I’m watching @onewpc on Survivor and yelling at the telly and suddenly my family are all in the same room yelling Go Brains. The last time we were all together willingly it was to claim our socks from the odd sock basket before I chucked them out.

The sheer magnitude of roadworks in Adelaide right now is quite sinister. I think they’re aliens.
