Thirst, by Lizzie Wilcock
Kandra Hooke doesn’t need anything, or anyone. On the way to her sixth foster home, she experiences a crash involving her, a dead driver and a kangaroo, then, she makes her move. Armed with a backpack, some clothes, a drink bottle, and a frayed photo of a mother she hasn’t seen in years, she heads into a fatal desert. There’s only one thing in her way.
Eight year old Solomon.
