Summary

Two teenage girls find the dynamics of their friendship change when they make friends with a new girl with a history of physical abuse in her family.

Best friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie - confident, funny and interesting.

Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated.

As Suzanne's past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be.

But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realizes, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own.

NOTE : Contains underage drinking, discussions of a sexual nature and some strong language
NOTE : Suzanne attempts an overdose of pills after she learns she is going to be taken into care but she is found in time.
