'This novel moves at a breathless pace showing the two girls coping in impossible circumstances. Miriam Halahmy successfully uses a light touch with this dark material. I thoroughly enjoyed it.' Anne Cassidy


Fifteen year olds Tasha and Josie are near-neighbours. But when their families let them down, they find themselves unlikely allies in a battle for survival. 

Josie is the daughter of an obsessive-compulsive hoarder whose house is no longer safe. Tasha, though materially well cared for, feels sexually threatened by her mother’s new boyfriend,who her mother chooses over her daughter. They are girls on the margins of adulthood, who find themselves also on the margins of society.
