Book Description

Seventeen-year-old Friday Brown is on the run - running to escape memories of her mother and of the family curse. And of a grandfather who'd like her to stay. She's lost, alone and afraid. Silence, a street kid, finds Friday and she joins him in a gang led by beautiful, charismatic Arden. When Silence is involved in a crime, the gang escapes to a ghost town in the outback. In Murungal Creek, the town of never leaving, Friday must face the ghosts of her past. She will learn that sometimes you have to stay to finish what you started - and often, before you can find out who you are, you have to become someone you were never meant to be.

The Brown women were cursed. Going back generations they all died at an early age, on a Saturday, and all involving water. Vivienne would tell Friday that when she died the curse would move to her. Knowing this Friday wondered why her mother was always drawn to water. Every time they came across a river her mother would strip off and dive straight in. They lived a nomadic life moving from town to town. Friday loved this life, just the two of them. She grew up knowing love, peace and adventure. After her mothers death (another fatality of the Brown curse?) 17 year old Friday decided that she would start a new life on her own.
