‘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.

@DanielleClode I ripped its face off. It was a reflex. 😕

@MacDibble I’ll definitely have to do something about it now. It’s my fault. I distinctly remember ripping its poor little blood-sucking face off—now I have a parasitic gob in my body.

@MacDibble I love your stories, Bren. (Weirdly, I’ve heard of this. I researched the guinea worm for TIHWCtE.) 😱
