The Strange Tale of Ruby Devenpeck

The Strange Tale of Ruby Devenpeck

A ghostly hitchhiker
a man in black
the guy from Jozi
better watch his back
a cat, a rock chick
a girl on a mission
with a guitar
and a heart full of lyrics
as ammunition

but who’s out to get her?
who wants to reduce her to a wreck?
what is the strange tale of
Ruby Devenpeck?

Ruby’s story is a mystery and a journey, a story of a 17 year old girl who is growing up in a small town in South Africa. We meet a variety of characters, some interesting, some despicable, although one of the delights of Ruby’s story is that sometimes the most attractive characters harbour the deepest secrets.
