Tuesday Book Club: My Father’s Shadow by Jannali Jones
Woken in the middle of the night, Kaya is forced to flee to Mount Wilson in the Blue Mountains without her father, who is embroiled in a court case giving evidence against a band of dangerous criminals.
Barred from the internet and socialising by her protective mother, Kaya doesn’t know who to trust in the small community. As the trial approaches, she tries to recall hazy memories from an chilling encounter with the criminals.
Skirting genres, this is a triumphant coming-of-age thriller by the recipient of the winner of the black&write! fellowship.
