This is what I want to do. I want to go home. I want you to come with me.
'I want to go from here . . .'
Finger on Cape Reinga.
'. . . to here.'
Finger at the bottom of Stewart Island, right at the bottom of the map.

It's been years since Alex was in New Zealand, and years since he spent any one-on-one time with his twin sister, Amy. When they lose their parents in a shock accident it seems like the perfect time to reconnect as siblings. To reconnect with this country they call 'home'.

As they journey the length of State Highway One, they will scratch at wounds that have never healed - and Alex will be forced to reckon with what coming home really means.

'Terrifically drawn characters, a narrative that is both entertaining and increasingly tense, all sparkling with a gorgeous sense of humour.' - Nigel Featherstone, author of BODIES OF MEN
