Young adult fiction that will take your breath away about loss and how to handle it, families and surf lifesaving on Auckland beaches. Winner of the Laura Solomon NZSA Cuba Press Prize 2022.
What if the worst thing that could ever happen to you had already happened, but you didn't realise? Like your brain couldn't handle it, so you turned it into a comic. Then closed it. Fourteen-year-old trainee lifeguard Mandy Malham has wanted to beat Jen in the surf lifesaving championships at Soldier Tree Bay ever since Jen bullied her in primary school, but to do that, Mandy comes to realise that first she must rescue herself.
'Between the Flags' is a story of losing and finding yourself when some days it feels like the only friend you have is the pen in your hand.
