'Karanda Hooke doesn’t need anybody or anything. On her way to her sixth foster home, a crash leaves her stranded in the desert with only a backpack, a bottle of water and a stained picture of the mother she hasn’t seen in years. But although there’s no civilisation for miles and miles, for the first time, she feels like she is where she belongs, like she has a future ahead of her. There’s only one thing in her way . . . eight-year-old Solomon. As the two children make their way through the outback, Karanda and Solomon have a few lessons to learn about the ties that bind us—and one link that might come as the biggest surprise of all.
