Canberra Author’s Debut Novel

By web_guy - 13 August 2013 7

Canberra born and raised author Christie Thompson has released her debut novel ‘SNAKE BITE’ (Allen and Unwin).

Set in Canberra’s south it follws the story of Jez who is seventeen and lives with her alcoholic single mum in in a government rental in Canberra’s outer-suburbs, with little money or future prospects.

As well as suffering from terminal boredom, Jez has got epic First World Problems: where is her next pill coming from, what will her first tattoo be, and how will she ever lose her virginity? 

Over the course of one blazing summer, Jez runs a gauntlet of new experiences and discovers the real meaning of home.

Filled with humour, brilliant observations and raw revelations, Snake Bite is a contemporary Puberty Blues, the coming-of-age story of a wild teenager in a Canberra you never dreamed existed.

It will sink its fangs into, inject you with its intoxicating venom, and never let you go.

Good on her. Excellent work.

Hopefully she gets good sales and more opportunities.

However, this is truly gag worthy, It will sink its fangs into, inject you with its intoxicating venom, and never let you go

I flicked through this at Big W last weekend. Not bad, but I didn’t buy it.
