Raven is a deeply disturbed teenager, who, after witnessing the death of his mother, is placed in foster care. The Russells do their best to earn his trust, but only little Ella manages to get through to him.
Meanwhile, at school, bullies are making his life a living hell. An unexpected companion comes in the form of Lotte, a classmate bored by her 'ordinary' friends. Together, they track down Raven's mum's killer, with the goal of exposing him to the police. But their carefully crafted plan goes dangerously wrong and suddenly nothing is as it seems. Everything is falling apart and, ultimately, there is only one, final way out.

Review quote

"From Where I Stand engages with a number of emotional issues - fostering, bullying, self-harming, grief - in a sensitive and realistic way. With a pacy narrative this is a novel to have several copies on the shelves" * The School Librarian * "Ultimately this is a book about guilt and redemption, as well as a deeply compelling read, probably for readers of 14 and over" * Books for Keeps * "A fast-paced psychological thriller, impossible to put down and with a very suprising final twist" * Carousel * "A massive plot twist in the denouement makes this a great read" * The Bookseller * "There are no punches pulled in this exciting psychological thriller" -- Julia Eccleshare * *
