A YA coming-of-age road trip novel about obsession, self-discovery, female power, and the people we meet along the way - by Costa Award shortlisted author Kit de Waal. The perfect read for anyone who's ever wondered where they came from and where they might be going next.

4 stars out of 5

"a gripping, heart-wrenching coming-of-age story"

Dinah was raised in a commune until things went sour, and she and her mother were stranded with the embittered, furious Ahab, owner of the commune’s land. Now Dinah is desperate to leave her mistakes behind, and Ahab needs her help to chase a stolen white camper van; what will she learn about herself during their wild journey? Kit de Waal’s first YA novel is a gripping, heart-wrenching coming-of-age story – and an audacious response to Moby-Dick.
