Book Launch - 'The Brink' by Holden Sheppard

Join Holden Sheppard and Craig Silvey for the release of Holden's latest book The Brink. Recommended for ages 16 and over.

About The Brink

A group of school-leavers: free at last, ready to party, expectations high. A remote island on the Western Australian coast wasn’t exactly the plan, but they’re not going to let that hold them back. But the party takes a dangerous turn when Val is drugged and a man is later found dead on the beach. Blame, fear, mistrust, coverups, power plays and dark secrets tear the group apart and expose the deadly tensions beneath the surface. Each teen is forced to confront demons that will lead them either to devastating tragedy or transformative triumph. Whoever survives the week will never be the same again.
