‘I’m a born traveller. I know I am. It’s either in you, or it isn’t. But at the moment, I’m a born traveller who hasn’t gone anywhere.’

Colette has dreams of packing a rucksack and taking off to faraway and exotic places. But how can she ever win the school Travel Writing Competition when the farthest she’s going this summer is the seaside town of Weston with her father?

But a chance meeting on the beach at dawn brings her into contact with Robert and Caz. As the summer afternoons stretch ahead, Colette’s journey begins.
