August 2015 NewGen Debut of the Month.
Carla has had to move a lot and is used to changing schools, but doesn’t like it. She’s shy, unconfident, ‘a bit sad’. Faced with another new school for sixth form, she finds like-minded people - according to her own classification ‘Brainy Plain Girls’ - but can’t believe it when Finn, gorgeous, super-cool and oozing charisma, singles her out. She’ll do anything to keep him interested, and is soon partying wildly, weekends lost in a haze of drink and drugs. Her friends and even Finn’s brother warn her that he’s just using her, but Carla refuses to listen putting her schoolwork and her health in jeopardy. Readers will understand Carla’s motivation completely and this cautionary romance makes for compulsive reading.~ Andrea Reece

But Isaac has an ulterior motive, doesn't he? Is either brother right for Carla?
