Crocodile

Available

Description

She's remembering curtains closed against whatever might harm them and all the knick- knacks: the porcelain fairy, the chain of rubber dolphins, CDs piled a metre high. This was what home meant.

It's the summer before high school and Chloe is being sent away. Her mother can't cope and needs something that her daughter cannot provide. All Chloe wants is to get away from her grandparents and back to her mother, her friends, and the life she knows.

That is until she falls in with a local gang of outsiders and begins to experience the world she has been missing. However, her mother's influence is strong and, as her life increases in savagery and risk, the girl will be forced to decide how much danger she can stomach.

Crocodile is a story about the powerful connection between parent and child, and the intensity of the final summer of childhood. As with his debut, Fallow, it is told in Shand's trademark style, blending elements of the grotesque and tender, undercut by a current of dark comedy.
