Juvie is done with detention centers, group homes and foster parents. Done with living life on someone else’s terms. At 15, she is perfectly capable of taking care of herself. Not a very high bar, considering the trail of inept adults in her wake.
When the last foster father steps over a big red line, she does what she has to do, and with a cumbersome suitcase, Juvie takes to the road…and to the trees. The woods, she believes, will be her salvation. She is sure of it.
With only a few stolen items to aid her survival, she starts a journey north, away from everything she’s known, and everything she wants to forget.
But the world has no shortage of nefarious people, and mother nature is no walk in the park.
