Rick is her sweet neighbour. Bob is her mean neighbour. Skunk’s world is about to change…
Shortly after witnessing a brutal beating, Skunk’s home, neighbourhood and school all become treacherous environments, where the happy certainties of childhood give way to injustice and danger; her innocence is rapidly worn away and a harsh world fills her future. When Skunk finally seeks solace in an unspoken friendship with sweet, damaged Rick, she’s left with a choice- to stay in a life she was not promised, or to leave this broken place behind…
