Sixteen-year-old July MacKenzie can hardly recognize her own life anymore. A few months ago, she was enjoying her urban lifestyle in Vancouver, going to school, hanging out with the same old friends she’d had for years. Now, when she steps out her back door, the only evidence of human existence she sees is an empty road, stretching off in the distance to...nowhere.It all happened so fast! Her mom was killed in a hit and run accident, and before she knew it Marie, her other parent, had sold the house, packed up and moved them out into the Interior. How could she leave everything behind like that? July could never make new friends. She’d never get used to the dark nights of the countryside. And she’d never, ever, stop missing her birth mom as long as she lived!

An authentic perspective on the gritty underside of rural youth culture.
