Synopsis

From Where I Stand by Tabitha Suzuma

Raven is a disturbed teenager, who, after witnessing the death of his mother, is placed in foster care. Meanwhile, at school, bullies are making his life a living hell. However, an unexpected companion comes in the form of Lotte, a classmate bored by her 'ordinary' friends. Together, they plan to track down Raven's mum's killer.

About the Author

Tabitha Suzuma
Tabitha Suzuma was born in London in 1975 to an English mother and a Japanese father, the eldest of five children. She went to the French Lycée in South Kensington and was a terrible pupil! but spent a lot of my time writing with her left-hand (she's right handed) in an attempt to while away the hours. Being half Japanese, she was sent to Japanese Saturday school. In the term report, the teacher commented that she would make more progress if she didn't always insist on sitting with her feet up on the desk. This still remains her favourite writing position, which is why she now has a reclining chair and a cordless keyboard.
