Ella loves Max - she really does. But although they have been together for years, something almost physical is stopping her having sex with him. Max is very patient and hopes everything will work out eventually - but Ella has a secret so toxic she dare not share it.
And she's not the only one. As old friends from school - who have not been seen since the tragic death of Max's sister - come into their story, the couple get caught up in a cycle of revenge and violence that reaches a terrible climax with devastating consequences.
What starts as an exploration of the nature of love and physical relationships evolves into something much darker as unspoken secrets are gradually revealed and begin to shed light on contemporary events. A pacey and engaging thriller for young adults.
