‘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.

If you’re trying to keep up fluids I highly recommend dunking a Peters Pineapple & Raspberry Twin Pole (between bites) into a champagne flute of straight gin. Fancy.

@CalBlack_ We closed for three weeks over Christmas (manufacturing) so going back during Covid is uncharted territory. That’s great if you’re busy with local bookings!

@CalBlack_ Yeah our business opens up again Tuesday—we’re quarantined and already 3 people off for being positive or close contact. It’s astounding how many are affected…and we don’t have the case numbers of Vic or NSW. Hope you can ride it out (and thank you). xx

@CalBlack_ I hope you don’t have to open. I say this as a suffering business owner and contributor to this ‘all-important economy’, but also as a parent of a Covid positive child. It’s a horrible illness. If WA functions well as a smaller economy (as SA did), McGowan should stay closed.
