For 18-year-old Sidney Shaw, life pretty much sucks. Her mom’s a drunk. Her dad is worse. At school, she’s bullied by her ex-best friend. And cutting no longer brings the relief she craves.
When Sidney is forced into group counseling, she meets perfect, popular Arianna, the type of girl who grieves over a broken nail. But Arianna has secrets of her own. Arianna might prove herself a friend—if Sidney can let her guard down. Then there’s Lucas, the sweet and funny new guy who sees straight through her tough, snarky façade.
But Sidney’s wounds go deeper than anyone knows. When her secrets threaten to unravel her, Sidney must choose. How far is she willing to go to protect her family? And who can she turn to when the unthinkable happens?
A powerful exploration of trauma, resilience, and hope, perfect for fans of Ellen Hopkins, Laurie Halse Anderson, and Gayle Forman.
