Sally Piper shows great insight into the intensity and importance of teenage girls' friendships, and into the way shame and unvoiced anger erode relationships...This is a gripping, haunting and moving novel that made me want to call up my best friends from high school and talk about all the things that were too terrible to face back then.

- INGA SIMPSON, Author of Where the Trees Were and Understory


This is an ambitious novel...Piper does a fine job of exploring the nuances of her characters and their battle with themselves.
