About this item

"A compelling coming-of-age story set in a dead-end Queensland town that's imbued with warmth, empathy and real wit. . . . Clancy of the Undertow blends the excruciation, confusion, and hope of being a teenager into a novel that will pull in readers of any age."?Guardian

Realistic contemporary teen fiction about the value of friendship, family, and being yourself.

Clancy is a bit of an outsider, and her family have stopped bothering to really communicate with each other. But when her dad is involved in a car accident that kills two local teens the town turns against her family. Clancy's family has to work out how to understand the events, deal with the anger of the community and tackle their own challenges.

Funny and wry, Clancy perfectly conveys the confusion and hope of being a teenager. An insightful novel about growing up and figuring out who you are, this will appeal to fans of John Green.

Christopher Currie is a writer and bookseller, whose fiction has appeared in anthologies and journals internationally. His first novel, The Ottoman Motel, was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Book Prize and the Queensland Literary Awards in 2012. Clancy is his first YA novel.
