Beyond Evie

Rebecca Burton
A completely enthralling coming-of-age story that takes you the rollercoaster ride that first love - and obsessive love - can be. Ages 14+ Charlotte has a good life. She's a gifted athlete and she loves hanging out with her friends. It's true, she doesn't talk much about how she feels since her father's death - but that's just Charlotte. That's the way she is. Now there's something else she doesn't talk about, either. How can she tell anyone about what happened last year? How can she tell anyone about Evie? A story of heartbreak and recovery, of first, obsessive love and its lasting legacy, from the critically acclaimed author of Leaving Jetty Road. Praise for LEAVING JETTY ROAD 'A perceptive, quietly powerful piece about friendship. Burton paints settings, characters and relationships with a sweet and poignant freshness' KIRKUS REVIEWS 'Burton skilfully captures universal doubts and insecurities that are a part of growing up ...Although psychologically intense, the book remains optimistic, hinting in the end that the girls will overcome their obstacles even as they choose different paths' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Age: 14+
