    One thought on “Inbetween Days”

    1. ‘Inbetween Days’ is the new contemporary YA novel from Australian author, Vikki Wakefield. It’s taken me so long to get around to writing a proper review of this book because a lot of crazy things have been happening lately and I’ve found myself getting so busy I had to come back and do a re-read of Wakefield’s new gem before I could sit down to write a proper review, and in doing so I re-discovered a little slice of literary calm in the midst of my hectic waking life. A novel to take [...]

    2. I will always, always unconditionally love Vikki Wakefield's books like a lost girl in a desert finding a glass of fresh of water. What are the chances of finding something like that? You tell me.

    3. 5 Words: Family, friendship, resentment, love, growing-up.This book very much sits on that fine line between YA and Adult fiction - as much as it's about growing up, that inbetween time when you aren't yet grown but are no longer a child, it is also written in a rather mature and slightly less accessible (for me) style.I loved the small town mentality, how everything came back to it. I loved how the Jack seemed so trapped, how everyone seemed trapped, but that no one ever properly left. I loved [...]

    4. This is going to sound weird and a tad narcissistic, but I feel like Vikki Wakefield writes books just for me. This one in particular.It’s like she’s crawled into my soul, found all my insecurities and all the things I didn’t like about myself as teenager and captured them in the wonderful mess that is Jack. And, as usual, she’s done it in a way that’s poetic and profound and beautifully written.As with every Wakefield novel, the relationships all ring true - between siblings, lovers, [...]

    5. Reading Age: 14+ Themes: Small-town coming-of-age story about friendship, escape and love.Vikki Wakefield legions reassemble. There’s a new book to be read! This is another beautiful and poignant tale of rural adolescence from the author of CBCA Honour Book Friday Brown and All I Ever Wanted.‘Wakefield has captured small-town life perfectly. There is the stifling sense of everyone knowing everyone, but also the boredom that comes from being a teenager with nowhere to go. In these claustropho [...]

    6. [4.5] I read a lot of YA and most of it is urban, so it was refreshing to see a different locale – in this case a small town in the Australian bush. The book reminded me, in both tone and the bush setting, of Jasper Jones – except even better. The setting in this book is almost a character; the small town in its death throes and the subsequent lack of employment and opportunities for the young people that live there. It leads to two things in this book – they either leave or they drink for [...]

    7. Vikki Wakefield’s third novel is just as intense and engaging as her previous two. Seventeen-year-old Jacklin Bates lives with her sister Trudy on the outskirts of their small country town, Mobius. She’s dropped out of high school, thinks she’s in love with a boy who is clearly using her, and is caught in between teen age and adulthoodRead the rest of my review at Reading Time . There's also a piece by Vikki about writing the book. It's eloquent and insightful.

    8. Vikki Wakefield’s Inbetween DaysThis is South Australian YA author Vikki Wakefield’s third novel. I also enjoyed her All I Ever Wanted and Friday Brown. This new title has an older feel even though main character Jack is seventeen. Jack is living with ‘runaway’ sister, Trudy and waiting for Luke to notice her, but it is Jeremiah who does, intelligent, quirky, kind Jeremiah. This novel is inhabited by very interesting people: Pope, who Jack is afraid has come to the forest to die, like so [...]

    9. Pages read: 36I've been bored for all of those pages. Thematically most similar to The Piper's Son, which I also DNFed.

    10. Vikki Wakefield has done it again. She’s gone and taken my breath away with another exquisite book. While it (thankfully) doesn’t have the soul-crushing heartbreak of Friday Brown, Inbetween Days is an equally gorgeous novel and has reinforced my love for Wakefield’s unforgettable prose.As with Friday Brown, the hot, dry, stifling regional Australia setting is a character in its own right in Inbetween Days. The slow, almost suffocating, slightly macabre small-town of Mobius came to life so [...]

    11. This is the third novel by Australian author Vikki Wakefield. What is inspiring about Wakefield’s work is her skill in tapping into the issues that are fundamental to teens and she does not hold back in her depiction of small country town Australia. Reading this novel the inactivity, the unemployment, the lack of opportunity or motivation and hope is almost palpable. This story, the pace, the characters and the colloquialisms are quintessentially Australian. Seventeen year old Jack (Jacklin) h [...]

    12. Vikki Wakefield certainly has a way with words. Within pages I was taken into a small, dying town and instantly connected with Jack, a 17 year old girl who was living with her sister, working in the local store and meeting her boyfriend once a week in a secret location. I could see the oldness of the main street, hear the cat screeching and almost feel the dust on my skin, and more than once, I had to go and give my dog a cuddle after reading about Jack's dog, Gypsy. There were so many things go [...]

    13. I found the story rather dark, Vikki Wakefield did a great job of creating the setting in the depressing small town of Möbius. It is a complex and well written story with plenty of imagery. A coming of age story about the choices a 17 year old girl makes as she gains independence.

    14. I'm not really liking the direction that this book is going in. The main character is pretty dislikable and makes poor decisions. DNF at pg. 110.

    15. Reviewing Vikki Wakefield is always so hard because she reduces me to incoherence, that's how good her books are.

    16. I liked the main character's relationship with her mom. Her mom was funny. Ma: "Tomorrow you should put that new license into action. Have some fun."Jacklin: What? "Why?"Ma: "Because one day you're hot in a string bikini, and the next time you blink you're Mrs. Doubtfire."It had some really good writing, too: "I missed being happy at least half the time. I'd never noticed before, but rage sits under your ribs.""Ma's weekly treatment and blow-dry--in all her years she'd never come out looking muc [...]

    17. Vikki Wakefield's first YA novel Friday Brown was a CBCA Notable Book in 2013 and this second novel fulfills the promise shown then. Jacklin, the narrator has left school in year 11 and the writer's focus is not on bullying at school but the results of it later. In the dying country town of Mobius in Victoria, Jacklin hates herself for her constant inability to get on with her mother or her older sister or communicate successfully with the boys who either desire her for sex or friendship. Lurkin [...]

    18. Wakefield portrays young adult angst in a raw, and at times, provocative way. The relationships and romances in this book are deftly described and certainly not childlike. This is a young woman attempting to find her place in the world and making lots of mistakes along the way. A difficult family set-up, fraught relationship with her sister, and a mixture of friendships both passing and lasting make this a complex story in many ways. Throw in life in a small country town and you have quite a gri [...]

    19. This is probably my least favourite book from Wakefield so far, but seeing as it is still a Wakefield story, it was brilliant. The plot in this novel seemed very abstract for a lot of the story and the ending far from gave me the closure I needed. However, I feel very attached to this book right now. Jack, Gypsy, Trudy, Jeremiah, Roly, MeredithSuch an amazing diverse group of characters who truly made this story. Definitely a great story of self discovery.

    20. Every time I read a Vikki Wakefield book it takes me a while to recover. Much like All I Ever Wanted and Friday Brown, Inbetween Days is heartbreaking, hopeful and absolutely stunning.

    21. "It seemed to me that if people would just say what they meant, we'd all get back half our lives in wasted time" (47).The mother-daughter conflict is too vague.The "dying small town" trope works well. The suicide forest is a stellar plot device and setting.The relationships that are depicted are consistently unsettling. The pace matches the character's trepidatious growth and reticence.Jeremiah is a gem.These simple sentences oversimplify the complexity of the novel.

    22. eh its like to kill a mocking bird but jasper jones but older and with more sex. eh, i didn't really like any of the characters so lol. on the brightside its cool to see jack learn the difference betweensexual desire and an acu†al relationship i guess thats a cool thing to talk about. okay thats it , kinda bland, need me good reads goal to be met tHIS yeAr yeWWWW

    23. This book was a good solid 3.5 stars. Honestly, I wouldn't have picked it up if it wasn't on the CBCA awards list, but I'm glad I read it. I quite liked the characters, as they had depth and interest to them, however I found the storyline to be a little slower in its progression. Overall, it was a good read, particularly if you like good character development stories.

    24. A gutsy read about a 17 year girl, living in a small Australian town, finding who she is. A rites of passage book exploring romance, family, loss and loneliness it manages to avoid being cheesy and leaves you caring about the characters. I will forgot about this book straight away, but only because there wasn't so much for me to empathise with. A good teenage read.

    25. Jacklin lives in a very small town, overshadowed by mountains & a forest where people come to end their lives.Meanwhile, Jack is trying to kickstart her own life - leaving school to work a part-time job, moving in with her newly-returned older sister, & having a fling with an older boy from the next town.It's that time between leaving school & starting the rest of your life. Jack thinks she’s living but she’s in limbo, waiting for Luke to love her. Jack is quite independent and f [...]

    26. This the second short listed book in the young adult category for the Australian Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award 2016. The complete short list can be viewed here. cbca/shortlist-2016I didn't sink into this as easily as I did the other books on the list. This is the only one that took me longer than 48 hours to read. However it is one that has stayed with me after reading.Vikki Wakefield provides a strong portrait of rural town Australia - a place slowly dying as it's young people [...]

    27. I have two words to support my reasoning for my two stars for this novel: too sad. It's a simple as that, I felt like the whole novel was just documenting the life of this depressing town, it's small population and basically how difficult life was because of the limited opportunities available. Jack could be a described as a teenager wise beyond her years, however only in certain aspects of her life; for the most part she seemed like a troubled teenager, who was lost and needed to be found. Hone [...]
