THRILL SEEKERS

The Oxley Creek Boys are thrill seekers; young, invincible and willing to risk everything to feel alive. Drink, drugs, sex – it’s all theirs for the taking. But things change. Brian’s dad is dead and his little brother Douggie has started hearing voices. When the thrill is gone, is there nowhere left to go, no direction home?

Set in Brisbane, and told as a series of skilfully linked short first-person narratives, this fast-moving and gripping story deals with teenage issues and tough topics.

‘Shaw’s spotlight-sharp portrait of teenagers growing up fast and loose, dazed and confused in 1980’s Brisbane is so real it hurts’ – New South Wales Premier’s Literary Award

‘Edwina’s story sparkles like a diamond which can nevertheless cut very deeply indeed. Thrill Seekers is a memorable and thrilling debut’ – Veny Armanno author of The Volcano, Firehead, Black Mountain

“Sometimes I know a book is going to be special just by the feeling of the first line. The characters are already talking to me – already pulling me into their world and it’s too late for me to turn back, even if I want to. I’m in until the end.

Thrill Seekers is so real – so very true that you can’t help but be moved. Simple, beautiful writing with a massive heart – I just love this book.”
Favel Parrett author of Past the Shallows and When The Night Comes

“Edwina Shaw is a virtuoso in the school of gritty realism. Her writing has a raw visceral power that grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go. Edwina is a natural storyteller with an unfailing ear for the true speech of the everyday. She has a remarkable ability to get inside the heads of a wide range of characters and to portray them with a sympathetic but unsentimental realism.”
Amanda Lohrey author of the prize winning Reading Madam Bovary, Vertigo, and Camille’s Bread

This book is part of the Breakouts series. It is perfect for readers who have gained a bit more confidence in reading and who are after a more challenging read, but who aren’t yet ready for longer, more demanding reads.
