Town (Short Stories)

Author(s): James Roy

Teen (Ages 15+)

From a town near you comes thirteen linked stories, spanning a year in the lives of thirteen young people. You'll live their love and loss, grief, humour and passion; feel their hope and hopelessness. From the serendipity of an unexpected moment of connection to the sadness of leaving home and the pain of the desperate decisions we make, these stories take a personal and uncompromising look at life. In Town , James Roy uses the short story to explore the lives of the young residents of an Australian town. This town doesn't have a name. But if it seems familiar, it's because we recognise the people who walk the streets.
