This is Signy, the main character in my developing science fiction story, Rogue Wave.
From what I've been able to write, Signy, an over-qualified elementary physics teacher, arrives at her friends' home to find their son, Maxwell, alone. His parents have disappeared for many weeks. So, running away from the secretive galaxy detective agency who are strangely interested in the boy's parent's research, Signy and Maxwell venture out into the wild, black expanse to solve the mystery of why his parents are missing--revealing many things about themselves and about the universe.
It takes place in outer space involving black holes, bounty hunters, other dimensions and the afterlife, panpsychism, and fear. It is still developing after all my reading on quantum physics, philosophy, and cosmology.
