When sixteen-year-old May leaves her sheltered Toronto suburb to visit London for the first time, her only worry is that she might miss something on her meticulously planned itinerary.
But soon after she arrives, she meets the tattooed punk-rocker Sid, a brooding environmentalist who May begins to suspect is involved with a radical group responsible for recent eco-terrorist attacks in London. When Sid tries to plunge into May’s life romantically, it lands her at MI5 headquarters where she is questioned by British Intelligence about a potential plot targeting the Queen. Now May wonders whether she can resist Sid, or stop him from the destructive path he is on.
In this coming-of-age tale, May explores her independence for the first time, discovering an inner strength, a dormant sense of adventure and a love for a city.
