Nowever by Kristina Bak

Book One in the Stevie Series


Book One in the Stevie Series


At sixteen Stevie is tortured by visions of a childhood trauma she can’t remember, and a growing awareness that she can secretly heal pain with her touch. She longs for her lost father who disappeared sailing to Australia. Betrayed by her best friend, she’s miserable at high school, too. She sets out alone on a wild quest halfway around the world and returns with shocking answers, craving normalcy, only to find terrifying complications in her own back yard.
