The Nowhere by Chris Gill

Two boys. Two farms. One deadly secret.

Seb longs for another life. A life far away from the remote farm that is now his home. A life far away from his mundane chores and short-tempered father. But when new neighbours move in, Seb hopes his luck is finally about to change. Could Jake, the enigmatic boy with a dangerous glint in his eye, be Seb’s ticket out of The Nowhere? And if so, how far are they both willing to go to escape?

Tender in parts, brutal in others, The Nowhere is a coming-of-age story that will not only resonate with the LGBT+ community, but anyone who has been young, isolated and infatuated – all at once.

  • My journey to The Nowhere
    Right now, on the eve of the release of my new book, The Nowhere, I am a bag of nerves and excitement. That frantic, anxious energy is pulsating through my veins as a range of questions circle my head: “What if nobody reads it?” “What if they read it and hate it?” And so on and so forth.
