‘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.

@eglantinescake So sorry, Penni. It was a similar story with my daughter last year. (I failed high school spectacularly too, and I have a lot of regrets but not about that.) Hope you both find a different, better path. xx

As I get older I find some of my belongings evoke an incredible wave of nostalgia (like my iMac g3 blueberry—except I’m too afraid to boot it up in case it catches fire and the pixels are HUGE and my nerd nostalgia bubble bursts).
