WA’s got a prestigious history of Young Adult fiction – take Tim Winton’s Lockie Leonard series or Elaine Forrestal, for starters. Anne Davies throws her hat in the ring with Wrath, a book pitched at secondary students, which takes a swing at WA’s proportionately unprestigious history of juvenile detention. Country boy Luca’s awaiting trial in juvie, having confessed via 000 to the murder of his mother and stepfather. He won’t tell anyone why he committed the crime, and now he’s plunged headfirst into harsh prison life, it’s even harder for him to find a friendly ear. Wrath is available from JoJo Publishing now, and if you’d like to win a copy, enter via the X-Press Digital app.
