`The worst thing that could ever happen had happened. I wanted to run and run. Out of the house, out of the world.' A few drunken moments at a party and Cass's world is turned upside-down. She has broken all her own resolutions and betrayed her parents' trust. Now she has an agonizing decision to make which will affect all their lives. Amid all the turmoil and heartbreak, there is only one person who seems to understand what Cass is going through-the last person in the world that Cass would have chosen as a friend, the yobbish bully, James Derwent. But James has problems of his own, and when these reach a crisis can Cass help him as he had helped her? And will she be in time...?
