Sixteen-year-old Therese lives in a small town on a small island. Her Aunt Kath calls her Tiger. Her friends call her Resey. The boy she loves calls her Champ. She's a lot of different things for a lot of different people.
Therese has always had her feet on the ground. She's running through high school, but someone in her life is about to fall ...
And when he does, her perfect world falls with him. For the first time in her life, Therese can't stand being on the ground.
Girl Running, Boy Falling is a raw read about a girl and boy- who are beautifully flawed.
About the Author
Kate Gordon grew up in a very booky house, with two librarian parents, in a small town by the sea in Tasmania. After studying performing arts and realising she was a terrible actor, Kate decided to give in to genetics and study to be a librarian herself. She never stopped writing and, in 2009, with the encouragement of a very nice man called Leigh (who is also her husband), she applied for and won a Varuna fellowship, which led to all sorts of lovely writer things happening.
Kate's first book, Three Things About Daisy Blue-a young Adult novel about travel, love, self-acceptance and letting go-was published in the Girlfriend series by Allen and Unwin in 2010. She's also written Thyla (Random House Australia), Vulpi, the sequel to Thyla (Random House Australia), Writing Clementine (Allen and Unwin) and Twenty- five Memories of Viggo MacDuff (Odyssey Books). In 2018, Kate was shortlisted in the Dorothy Hewett Awards for an Unpublished Manuscript.
'Girl Running, Boy Falling is everything you could hope for in a novel dealing with a difficult topic - it's thoughtful, artful, deftly crafted, raw, real and deeply affecting.' - Nick Earls
