Product description

Meet Dinah: not your typical teenage rebel. She’s shaved off all her hair, and now she’s driving off in a camper van. But where is Dinah running to? First you should ask what she’s running from. The commune. The scary place full of weird rules, so that Dinah needs to leave NOW, with a new identity and a prickly bald head. The plan is to go it alone, and hitch a ride down south. But the plan has gone wrong. Now she’s illegally driving a VW campervan for hundreds of miles. And she isn’t alone. There’s Aheb: a grumpy man with one leg. As they drive, he’ll force Dinah to face all the dark stuff that led her to this place. But at the end of it all, will Dinah know where to turn?
