Book Review: Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield
Synopsis from Goodreads:
‘I am Friday Brown. I buried my mother. My grandfather buried a swimming pool. A boy who can’t speak has adopted me. A girl kissed me. I broke and entered. Now I’m fantasising about a guy who’s a victim of crime and I am the criminal. I’m going nowhere and every minute I’m not moving, I’m being tail-gated by a curse that may or may not be real. They call me Friday. It has been foretold that on a Saturday I will drown…’
There are some books that I literally have no words for, and that can be a problem when trying to write a review. But, I have no words for this book.
It’s beautiful, heartbreaking, poignant, lingering, surreal, more aussie than a cut snake. Okay, bah copout, those were totally some words. This book is in my head, it’s beautiful sentences bumping together filling me with writer’s envy. The characters are in my heart, in my blood, so strong, so powerful. This story will stay with me.
GAH *throws book at you* just go read it will you, go!
