Description - After January by Nick Earls

Nick Earls popular first young adult novel, After January, now re-released with the story, 'Juliet' that started it all. Originally published separately, 'Juliet' is the prequel to Alex's journey into the summer that changed everything and is now included, for the first time, with the novel After January. It's though the future is held here. Held at bay, held at more than arm's length. Held just beyond my reach all the long days of summer. And the waiting is everywhere ...... This January is different. School is over for Alex Delaney and he's waiting for his tertiary offer - only seventeen days away. The waiting is killing him. He's not expecting much from January. So he's not ready for the girl who cuts past him on a wave. Not at all prepared for her perfect balance, her compelling green eyes and gold skin. January is about to change.
