A new edition of the cult favourite influenced by its feature film adaptation.
Carly works nights as a cook, so she can spend her days surfing, scratching to get waves at a territorial break. She’s moved there to be alone, but surprises herself by making two new friends. Hannah, her salsa-mad neighbour. And Danny, a young surfer who sees people in colours. But when Carly collides with local boy Ryan, she’s forced to confront her history.
Is just surviving enough? Or is she brave enough to live?
