Carrie is the new girl in class from Scotland whose single mum is always poor and whose only claim to fame is that she is good at drawing. But that is rather useless when you are at the bottom of the pecking order in your new U.S. high school and everybody is gunning for you. One night at a party from hell, Carrie meets Lin Christakis – Goth-fan, wildly popular, author-wanna-be, but also hiding a terrible secret. Despite all odds, they connect almost instantly. Which is when things begin to go terribly wrong … A story about our closest friendships, and how they sometimes risk breaking up before they even get started.
