Janey's background is grim - lock-the-door-at-night-type grim - but nothing weighs her down for long. She's wild, sexy, reckless, funny. Being friends with Janey is a roller-coaster ride - never dull, often risky...Chloe is the steady one; she anchors Janey as much as she can. But just how far can friendship go? That question is shockingly, brutally answered when Janey's world catches up with her...An extraordinary story of friendship, loss and love, from the author of The Best Thing...'Intensely moving. beautifully shaped.' - Katharine England, Advertiser...'A highly provocative novel - full of challenges in a number of ways. a joy to read.' - Cathrine Harboe-Ree, Viewpoint...'Lanagan writers richly, emotionally and devastatingly. she does not dictate. does not judge.' - Pam Macintyre.
