No Man’s Land

A YA Novel

For fifteen-year-old orphan Tom, loss is everywhere. And love is a risk. But then he meets Penny and risks losing everything…

Orphaned two years ago, Tom is restless and rootless as he now travels from country to country with his guardians on their charter dive boat. Sailing into another new port, he is surprised to meet up with an old friend and a group of other misfits – all miles from the countries they once thought of as home. They come together in a No Man’s Land that is as transient as anything else in their lives. But can any of it last, especially when there is a cyclone bearing down on them…?

No Man's Land (e-book 2015)
Freedom is one thing. Not belonging anywhere is another. Or maybe they are just different sides of the same coin.
