The Nest (Paul Jennings)

The Nest
Paul Jennings

Blurb: I suddenly feel apprehensive as my words turn to smoke and curl up the chimney. Does my story hold the answer? A dingo knows without being aware that it knows. Can a person know something without knowing it?

Robin's life is spiralling out of control. His father's a tyrant, his mother's disappeared and the wrong girl's luring him into her web...

Intolerable images keep flashing through his head. What does Robin really know about his past? Are there clues in his own writing? And what secrets lie within the frozen forest?

Paul Jennings' first novel fro older readers is a stunning and original network of crossing trails which combine to tell the dark, tense and ultimately uplifting story about a boy who dares to stare into the spider holes of his own mind.
