This book contains some mature themes. If you

you do not continue reading.


In a world of darkness and confusion, a family must learn to accept the harsh reality of being separated from a loved one. Sarina is an eight-year-old who has to learn how to be okay with the world falling apart around her, and how to live without her dad when he is stolen from her by jail.



Over the course of 2022, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at Story Factory. Their goal was to produce a fully realised novella. This is one of the novellas produced in these workshops. 

Year of the Novella 2022 was made possible thanks to the support of a group of generous donors:

Bernadette Brennan & Justin Gleeson SC

Rosebrook Foundation

Caroline Beecham & John Lydon

Greg Dean & Richard Unsworth

Kim Anderson

Deena Shiff & James Gill

Year of the Novella would not have been possible without the unstinting support of the editorial and production teams at Penguin Random House, Midland Typesetters, and the generosity of printer Griffin Press.
