Life doesn’t happen, you make it.
Mols and Jaz can’t wait for life to begin. In the meantime, they’ll make sure they get their share of excitement and fun. When they’re not seeking out the next ecstatic thrill, they’re making big plans for the future while exploring the headlands, sand dunes and storm drains of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. They race along the ridge between possibility and reality until they slam into the shocks, heartaches and impossible choices of adulthood.
The Best Feeling of All follows two friends who share in love, loss and life-altering decisions through the most emotionally charged of all life stages, the wild and euphoric years between 15 and 25. The story is told in three contrasting parts – Adolescence, Nineteen and Adulthood – and it’s about having the guts and imagination to shape our own lives.
‘Ellis’s writing remains true to the youthful energy of his characters, but his storytelling has real grace and potency.’
– Christos Tsiolkas, author of The Slap
