Publisher’s Description: 

With a huge debt to Robinson Crusoe and the film Cast Away, this ambitious story stars troubled teenager Frances, whose nurturing love for her younger brother drives her to imagine escaping their abusive, dysfunctional home."
-The Daily Mail

As part of an 'Outward Bound' style treatment for young people who've committed crimes, Frances finds herself on a plane to a remote village where she will do community service in exchange for staying out of juvenile detention.

But an accident leaves her alone on a small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. She has to find water and food. She has to survive. And when she is there she also has to think about the past. The things that she did before. The things that made her a monster. Nothing is easy. Survival is hard and so is being honest with herself.

So when she discovers another survivor on the island, will it bring out the worst in her again? Or will it finally help her to see that her future is worth fighting for?

A gripping and thoughtful story about a girl determined to survive against all odds and find the courage to become the person she wants to be.
