The Waystation is a science fiction novel that interrogates the concept of identity and how it is formed, examining in particular the ways in which stereotypes shape our perceptions of ourselves and our world. Through the lens of intersectional feminism, and focusing particularly on issues of gender, race, and mental health, this novel seeks to showcase the natural consequences of stereotyping through an accessible format. A critical examination of the sociological and psychological theories that underpin this foundation is included after the story, allowing for a clearer glimpse at the considerations that went into the structuring of the novel.
