Let me tell you my story.
Not just the facts I know you want to hear.
If I’m going to tell you my story,
I’m telling it my way.
Strap yourself in…

Eliza Boans has everything.
A big house.
A great education.
A bright future.
So why is she sitting in a police station confessing to murder?

Fury is Shirley Marr’s impactful debut YA novel, ranked #10 in Buzzfeed’s 27 Awesome Australian Books Every YA Fan Should Read. Gripping, funny, dark and shocking, welcome to the mind of a modern Furious girl.


“…Eliza, a stand-up comic voice replete with the conventions of oral comedy: deliberate verbal red herrings, asides, careful timing, punchlines, one liners. To me, Marr’s character Eliza is a modern and very upmarket version of Kylie Mole”

Marlyn MacDonald (Perilous Adventures)

“If you love Gossip Girl, you’ll fall hard and fast for this addictive thriller. 4 out of 5″

Girlfriend Magazine

“I felt that Fury invokes some incredibly strong visuals and I imagined it would be like Sofia Coppola directing Heathers”

My Girl Friday

“I just have to say that the first chapter would have to be one of my all time favourite first chapters in a novel I have ever read”
