A debut young adult verse novel about the colliding paths of a talented violinist and an aspiring street artist during the pandemic. Set in one of the most locked-down cities in the world – Melbourne, 2020.
Twelve-year old Freya’s world is turned upside down when she and her mum relocate to inner-city Melbourne. STUCK in a new apartment on the eleventh floor and Freya is afraid of lifts. STUCK in a new basketball team where not everyone likes a star new player. STUCK in a classroom of kids who don’t know Freya is a donor-conceived baby. STUCK, just like Little Audrey in the Skipping Girl sign – suspended in mid-air over the suburb of Abbotsford.
Being the new girl makes Freya feel like a dark cloud on a summer’s day. Can she figure out how to belong on Vinegar Street?
