Event description

Description

A novel inspired by the stories of returned children such as Jaycee Duggard and Michelle Knight.

Charlie Johnson is thirteen and in her first year of high school. She loves her family, netball and Liam, the cute guy who sits next to her in Science – but most of all she loves horses and horse-riding.
Charlie’s parents have leased her a horse, Tic Tac, from the local pony club, but one day they go out for a ride in the national park and only Tic Tac returns …
Four months later, long after the police and the SES have called off the search, Charlie is found wandering injured and filthy, miles from where she was last seen. Her family rejoice in her return, but can anyone truly recover from what Charlie’s been through? When a life has been shattered, how do you put the pieces back together?

The Way Back is a brilliant, insightful psychological thriller about a community’s worst fears, a family’s devastation, and a young woman’s journey through terror and courage.
