Clancy of the Undertow by Christopher Currie

We're sitting there with matching milkshakes, Sasha and me, and somehow, things aren't going like I always thought they would. We're face to face under 24-hour fluorescents with the thoroughly unromantic buzz of aircon in our ears and endless flabby wedges of seated trucker's arsecrack as our only visual stimulus.

In a dead-end town like Barwen a girl only has to be a little different to feel like a freak. And Clancy, a typical sixteen-year-old misfit with a moderately dysfunctional family, a genuine interest in Nature Club and a major crush on the local hot girl, is packing a capital F.

As the summer begins, Clancy's dad is involved in a road smash that kills two local teenagers. While the family is dealing with the reaction of a hostile town, Clancy meets someone who could possibly-at last-become a friend. Not only that, the unattainable Sasha starts to show what may be a romantic interest.

In short, this is the summer when Clancy has to figure out who the hell she is.

'Clancy of the Undertow is a beautiful story...

It's about the importance of fitting in or, failing that, finding someone to not fit in with.' Books & Publishing
