No True Echo

The Wellcome Valley is the kind of place people go to get away from it all. But how can you get away from everything unless the place you’re visiting is nowhere?

As far as Eddie is concerned, it’s even worse than that. The valley is the middle of nowhere. That’s how Eddie feels too. Empty. Nothingy. His life is defined by the absence of family members and all the things he doesn’t do.

But when a mysterious redheaded girl called Scarlett arrives, Eddie learns how the middle of nowhere can also be the centre of the universe.
