Fourteen-year-old Blue wants to have a go at normal life. Or at least wants to be left alone. As a young girl who lost her whole family to a house fire, Blue’s got a difficult road to traverse.
But it’s hard to act normal when you can get inside other people’s minds and hear their thoughts. So Blue shuffles from one foster home to another until she joins the O’Days… and finds a friend and ally in her neighbour Will.
On one of her nightly walks, Blue hears something that presents a tantalizing opportunity to avenge her family. Blue doesn’t just want to do it—she has to. Even if it means risking her own life and also that of Will’s.
Raw, gripping, and full of heart, NOT ALONE is a heartfelt journey of a teenager struggling to find her bearing. It is also the story of resilience and fighting for survival, even when the odds are stacked against you; and about how the bond that makes a family is not always one of blood.
