    Turtle Alveston is a survivor. At 14, she roams the woods along the Northern California coast. The creeks, tide pools, and rocky islands are her haunts and her hiding grounds, and she is known to wander for miles. But while her physical world is expansive, her personal one is small and treacherous. Turtle has grown up isolated since the death of her mother, in the thrall of her tortured and charismatic father, Martin.

    À quatorze ans, Turtle Alveston arpente les bois de la côte nord de la Californie avec un fusil et un pistolet pour seuls compagnons. Elle trouve refuge sur les plages et les îlots rocheux qu'elle parcourt sur des kilomètres.

Sa vie sociale est confinée au collège, et elle repousse quiconque essaye de percer sa carapace.
