Friday Brown

Friday BrownFriday Brown by Vikki Wakefield
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Friday, christened Lilianne, lives on the road with her mother, Vivienne. Vivienne is a will-o-the-wisp, breezing into and out of small towns leaving debt and broken hearts in her wake. She doesn’t do it to be cruel, it is more that she cannot bear to care, and when you begin to care then it’s time to leave. Friday believes every word her mother says: every story, every journey, every reason given for every event. When Vivienne becomes too ill to keep travelling, and they return to the house of Vivienne’s childhood, it is Friday’s opportunity to start create her own story. And, as she learns, not every story has to have a happy ending.
Friday Brown, is quite simply, an extraordinary book. Beautifully written, believable, heart-wrenching in places, cold and furious in others, Wakefield’s exploration of homelessness and the meaning of love and family is clearly articulated and moving. Highly recommended.
