A girl wakes up to find herself lying in a sea of mud. It’s in her mouth, her hair and encrusted across her body. What happened? Where is she? When she is found by a street kid, he asks her her name. She can’t remember – and so he calls her Red after the red shirt she is wearing.
A cyclone has hit Sydney and now she has to find out who she is and where she belongs. And why is there a locket around her neck with a USB inside?
A gripping ‘quest’ story intertwined with Red’s confusion and memory loss over her past. The reader puts her past together along with her as she remembers snippets throughout the story. Excellent.
