‘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.

Conversations with overseas friends: — Borders open and I’m there but no jokes about drop bears. I know they are not real. — Tree kangaroos are real tho. — WTF IS A TREE KANGAROO — Like possums but with kangaroo heads. — YOU’RE NOT SELLING ME ON THIS HELLSCAPE

@Becs Told mine that when they lie they get a red flare spot between their eyes—a throwback thing to Neanderthal days. Of course every time they told a lie they covered their foreheads.

Weeks ago I drove past a laneway near my neighbourhood to see around fifty cats/kittens in various insouciant poses. It was sad but also kind of wonderful. I’ve tried to find the lane again but it’s not there...maybe it has to be just the right time for the portal to open?
