What you need to know before your trail

Kenna arrives in Sydney to surprise her best friend, shocked to hear she’s going to marry a guy she’s only just met. But Mikki and her fiancé Jack are about to head away on a trip, so Kenna finds herself tagging along for the ride.

Sorrow Bay is beautiful, wild and dangerous. A remote surfing spot with waves to die for, cut off from the rest of the world. Here Kenna meets the mysterious group of people who will do anything to keep their paradise a secret. Sky, Ryan, Clemente and Victor have come to ride the waves and disappear from life. How will they feel about Kenna turning up unannounced?

As Kenna gets drawn into their world, she sees the extremes they are prepared to go to for the next thrill. And everyone seems to be hiding something. What has her best friend got involved in and how can she get her away? But one thing is rapidly becoming clear about The Bay: nobody ever leaves.

Travel Guide

The Bay, Australia

The beach and bay in the novel is fictional – Sorrow Bay. This is said to be somewhere fairly connected to Sydney, or at least reachable from it, as backpackers in the novel all seem to arrive via this point.

Sorrow Bay is so special and the waves so perfect for surfing that those who have found this seem to be hellbent on keeping it a secret.  The sand is white, the waves perfect and the sea so blue. Life here means setting up a tent, living off fresh food caught and foraged daily and the pure fresh air all around. People do leave the camp to visit Sydney and get supplies from time to time but The Bay is all they really need. The landscape here is made up of raw and barren land, plenty of trees and busy and a sense of freedom that nowhere seems to be able to get from elsewhere.

Not many people are allowed to come here. No one is invited. But once they get here, no-one is allowed to leave.
