All I Ever Wanted by Vikki Wakefield ·
How come there’s a huge gap between her and her best friend, Tahnee? If her amazing debut is anything to go by, I look forward to reading more of Vikki Wakefield’s books – hopefully soon! I mean, it’s do that or starve isn’t it? Over the nine apl before her seventeenth birthday, Mim’s life wakefisld upside down. At the core of the book is the idea that things and people are not what they seem.
I want more, truly. Mim’s story was a short, sweet, and completely gorgeous one. However, the editors reserve the right to object to anything that feels gratuitous or irresponsible — we want authentic stories, but we also feel a duty of care to our teenage readers.

View all 13 comments. Mim wants out and faraway, is it possible? Mim’s story is sweet and raw, her character likeable in its flaws, and her development and change of heart realistic and gradual. Some of the events which made me think this were finding out her Mum is a drug dealer and meeting her neighbours as some had bizarre jobs.
I will leave you with the submission criteria of a publishing house I will not disclose the name of. Now Mim has to retrieve a lost package for her mother. She has volumes and volumes of Lonely Planet travel guides read and reread. The same kind of yearning to move beyond the current reality is present in both books. Dispatched from Australia in 6 business days When will my order arrive? The boy tries to date rape Mim.
All I Ever Wanted
I remember near the start of the novel there was the mention of a noose at the watchtower. Your subtext is Toxic.
Open Preview See a Problem? How come there’s a huge gap between her and her best friend, Tahnee? And who is the mysterious girl next door who moans at night? And Jordan, the boy she sent Valentines to for years, why is he now suddenly a creep? I loved this debut novel published by Text—who are publishing some really interesting YA fiction.

Also doesn’t hurt that we share the same sense of wanderlust. But in her desperation to get away from everything that makes her who she is, she discovers a startling – and liberating – new way to view her life and those in it. The prose is superior, the characterisation is top notch and it is pushing the “YA edge” into more realistic and gritty territory.
Her prose is stunningly beautiful and atmospheric. Prices are subject to change without notice. Once getting to the end my thoughts have once again changed. I want to smash things with a golf club.
Fingers crossed it will make the cut into the short list: Mim hardly dares to say her dreams out loud, but she fiercely clings to the idea of a better life.
I knew from the beginning that I would love this book.
