Stand Alone

cover a

Justine Bywater is a rebellious young skateboarder. She hates her life and her mother, and has just recently lost her best friend in a boarding accident. Justine seeks escape by pretending to be someone else, and by squatting in abandoned houses, fighting recurrent nightmares of abandonment. She is convinced that she doesn’t belong in her family, and eventually runs away, determined to find out what “really happened” to her as a baby. Her journey of self-discovery leads to new acquaintances and experiences, and eventually, to the truth. She meets her father, and Officer Frank Sylvan, who can finally give her the answers she’s looking for.
