In ‘The Way Back’, Charlie Johnson is 13 and in her first year of high school.
She loves her family, netball and Liam, the cute guy who sits next to her in Science – but most of all she loves horses and horseriding.
Charlie’s parents have leased her a horse, Tic Tac, from the local pony club, but one day they go out for a ride in the national park and only Tic Tac return.
When a life has been shattered, how do you put the pieces back together?
The Way Back is a moving, haunting and all-tooreal novel that takes you beyond the headlines and explores a family’s worst nightmare with compassion and insight.
Kylie will speak at 7pm at the Nagambie Library, 352 High Street, Nagambie.
Bookings are required with Nagambie Library on 1300 374 765 by this Saturday,
