Twenty-six-year-old Nicole Najim is struggling to find herself after a painful breakup, just when she thought she was going to settle down.

Working a dead-end job in the family car dealership and at a loose end, she picks up her camera and returns to the melting pot of Sydney's West to rediscover her roots.

When she catches up with childhood friend, Danny, who makes his living in a shadowy underworld, their relationship intensifies just as the law starts to close in. Nicole must weigh her feelings against her deepest fears, all while chasing her own dreams and capturing the hidden truths around her.

Alex Sarkis writes with warmth, humour, and a spot-on eye for the characters and suburbs of the world she grew up in.

This is a novel about loving home and leaving home, but never escaping your roots. Or your footy colours.

Alex Sarkis was born and raised in Sydney's West to Lebanese immigrant parents. In her early twenties she began writing stories of her own.
