Shes back. Judes childhood friend — sexy, daring Stella— returns to their stifling hometown, and life will never be the same again.
Sixteen-year-old Jude has to get out of tiny Churchtown. She has to escape her outcast status and her pathetic dad, who hasnt gotten past her mothers death. The one bright light is drama, her way out, if only she can get into the Lab, a prestigious program in London. Then Stella, Judes childhood best friend, swaggers in after years away. With bold and magnetic Stella by her side, Jude knows shes capable of anything. But Stellas influence extends well beyond the theater. Soon Stellas wild and dangerous streak begins to cause trouble for Jude — yet Jude cant bring herself to abandon Stella and the attention shes always craved. And besides, now that Stellas back, theres no stopping her. In Judes dark and tangled story, British author Joanna Nadin plumbs the aftermath of loss and the consequences of becoming the person you always wished you were.
