White Noise is a contemporary young adult novel exploring grief, friendship and identity set in Darwin. Fifteen-year-old Emma is awoken by her dad’s nightmares. Again. On Friday evenings they go running at East Point Reserve to escape. Escape the ripples of grief that still chase them three years after her mother’s death; escape Emma’s autism diagnosis; escape her father’s work as an emergency room doctor. And now Emma’s best friend Summer is moving away to the other side of town. Their friendship and the routines that have kept Emma and her father going since her mother’s death splinter. In trying to pick up the pieces, Emma and her father realise too late that they can’t outrun themselves.
