Review: The Flywheel

I’m in love with a story about a gorgeous girl who is having a crap time. Her heartfelt honesty grabs me by the throat and won’t let me go.

Delilah is one of a kind. She cares about her people and she knows what she wants. She’s not afraid to go public, but she is way ahead of her time. Few are ready to be as open as she is. That’s when the trouble starts.

Delilah’s Mum moves interstate with her boyfriend and her dad is so miserable that Del decides to send him on an overseas trip in the hope that he will snap out of the doldrums. She assures him all will be well while he is away. But it isn’t. The café manager runs a red light. He doesn’t have a drivers license. Or a visa. So he is kicked out of the country.

And that is where the story begins.

The Flywheel twists and turns like the most complex theme park ride you could ever imagine. Be prepared to be hooked by an irresistible girl, her friends and her longing.
