Description - The Byron Journals by Daniel Ducrou

Andrew and his mate Benny have finished school and are heading for the holiday of their lives in Byron Bay. They are not sure what they're looking forward to most- the surf, the girls, the music, the partying or just being away from Adelaide. Things don't go to plan, and Andrew loses his mates. But he finds Heidi. Heidi is not like anyone he's ever met before, and she takes him into her world, which feels a million miles away from his past. But is Andrew really prepared for the ride he's about to take? The Byron Journals is an exciting debut novel by a fresh new voice in Australian literature. Fun, and sometimes frightening, it takes a clear-eyed look at the desire to escape your past and the dangers of running headlong into your future.

Book Review: Byron Journals by Daniel Ducrou - Reviewed by (11 May 2011)

In Daniel Ducrou’s novel, we follow Andrew as he makes the schoolies pilgrimage to Byron Bay. Andrew is trying to escape various things in his life in Adelaide. He hooks up with a girl like no-one he’s come across back home and things seem to be going great for a while. But escaping home, family and life in Adelaide is not so simple. Ducrou deals with quite a few topical issues and ideas: music, drug use, violence, sex, family, relationships and guilt. These are handled in a very realistic way and given to us through they eyes of a young adult. Ducrou has crafted his novel with an interesting plot, believable characters with depth, and credible dialogue. The result is hard to put down. Let’s hope we see more of his work.
