An inventive and evocative story, told in poems. Ava is hiding… from the small, cramped room where she lives with her mum and two siblings, from the taunts she gets at school, from her sometimes lonely and difficult life. But there’s love and support here too, in the form of Ava’s best friend Roxy, her wise Trinidadian Nan and a stray dog she befriends. Can Ava be brave enough to allow some light to shine into the darkest parts of her being?
