Summary Town is a collection of thirteen linked short stories for young adults. Set in a small unnamed Australian town over the course of a year, there is one story for each month, plus an overarching story to close, and each is told from the point of view of a different young person. These young men and women know each other - some intimately, some as friends, some as enemies and rivals, and some as mere aquaintances - and as the different characters appear in each other's stories, a vivid mosaic of the group's social structure begins to emerge. During the telling of these stories, which range in length from 2,000 words to 10,000 words, we learn much about the lives of these young people, who are all different in their own ways, and yet similar to each other - and to the young adult reader - in so many other distinctly recognisable ways
