    Synopsis

    "I had no idea how free we were. That's how free I was."An old friend, a best friend, a first love and the dreamer Neil Cronk who connects them all...Four school friends are on the verge of adulthood and the next 12 hours will change the course of their lives... Friendships will be broken, virginity lost, love unleashed and secrets buried.A decade later, one is dead, one is famous, two are getting married, and the truth is about to erupt.Wildly funny, brutal, tender and true, How It Feels is a coming-of-age story set in Sydney's Sutherland Shire with stopovers in Bathurst and London. Brendan Cowell's electrifying debut novel is a devastating ode to youth, capturing the beauty of growing up by the beach, and the darkness which moves beneath its surface.Because this is how it feels.
