Oleanders are Poisonous: Some Things Can't be Forgiven
In a town where gossip spreads like dust blowing in from the Mallee's canola fields, something unspeakable is about to happen to sixteen-year-old Lauren. It's bad enough she's losing her mum to a horrible disease and that her best friend is leaving town, but now the only person she thought she could trust, is about to betray her. She can't stay here. No one is going to believe the town cop could do such a horrific thing to his own daughter. There's nothing left to do but run. Especially after the fire.
