Released in February 2019 and inspired by the homeless community in Rochester, Minn., ROAM follows 17 year-old Abby Lunde as she navigates the caste system of a new high school while living with her mom, step-dad, and little sister in the family’s van in a Walmart parking lot.
Abby wants two things: to be a normal teen, and to keep her embarrassing secret from her new friends. But Minnesota winters are unforgiving, and so are many teens. As frigid temps settle in and her secrets are exposed, Abby knows she must trust those around her for support. But will her new friends rise to the challenge, or will they betray her like her old friends at her last school?
