AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jez felt her luck had finally changed the year she left Melbourne to start Year 11 at Barbican High in Brisbane. That was the year she met Nick and when everything fell into place. By the following summer it all changed. That's when Tommy and the angel became part of Jez's life, and her struggle to stop a terrible secret from taking over begins. This book is a passionate and exquisitely written verse novel, a roller-coaster ride of emotions and relationships, secrets and confrontations, the possibilities swinging between growing up, getting out of it and giving up.'
