As jy ’n ster sien verskiet (ePub) | Young Adult Fiction

Maya Fowler


 Riekie, aged 14, has been suspended from school because she dyed her hair black and was caught smoking a joint. Riekie’s absentee father is represented only by a monthly maintenance payout. Her older brother Wayne is dying of Aids after running away from home and getting hooked on drugs. Her hippie mother, who sobered up for a while, goes back to alcohol after Wayne’s death and does even less mothering than before.

After Wayne’s death, Riekie runs away and works in another small town in a restaurant at a filling station. But then things happen which give her a reason to go back home, to face once again the life she left behind.
