I Don't Belong Here (Paperback)
This is the story of a little bear and his journey with grief after losing his dad to suicide.
Amidst his feelings of anger, sadness, abandonment and fear, he struggles to understand himself and pushes the people around him away.
The trauma of his dad's death leaves him unable to sleep, which makes it hard for Willow to go to school, concentrate and fit in like all his friends. Willow also struggles with trust resulting in having only his pet caterpillar to share his thoughts with.
Willow has a very busy mind and when the voices become too much for him, he packs up his belongings along with his pet caterpillar in search of belonging.
Leaving his family behind, he follows the light of the moon and soon finds himself in a deep dark forest where he meets a group of forest friends and embarks upon a new journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
