Title: Hanging
Author: Betzien, Angela
Price: $23.99

‘We’re a circle. We’re forever. For eternity.’

Three teenage schoolgirls go missing in Melbourne’s hinterland. The clock is ticking, the search is on. One of the girls turns up days later. Confused and unkempt, she has no apparent memory of what happened and where her friends are. Sound familiar?

The Hanging is a gripping thriller that questions the frequently-occurring spectre of the missing girl in the Australian bush. Its mystery is a postmodern study of social panic and what lies hidden, just out of reach.

Cast : 2F, 1M

Two school girls are missing in Melbourne's hinterland. The clock is ticking, the search is on. The one clue is their closest friend and confidante. Beguiling and quick-witted, this 14-year-old ingenue won't give up her secrets easily. What exactly will the police uncover and what does her English teacher have to hide? As the girls' secrets are unravelled, the sinister side of their privileged school is exposed. The more famous the names and the more respected the families, the more dangerous the truth becomes.
