Description

'My boyfriend could get into trouble if he gets caught. He could go to jail.' I moan softly. 'So could I.'
'Anything you tell me is completely confidential.' I sigh deeply. What have I got to lose? 'I wouldn't know where to begin.'
'At the beginning?' she says. 'In your own words.'
So that's what I do. I start at the beginning like she says.
The day I met Suzie.

Indigo (Indie) rings the Samaritans. She is frightened and desperate with no one to turn to. Over the course of one long night, Indie tells her story to the person on the end of the phone. She realises that her friend Suzie has taken over her home, her friends, her work, her boyfriend - and her life. After every few chapters we are brought back to the present moment, and see how piecing the story together helps Indie progress towards resolution.

'This is another great novel by Chris Higgins ... The story moves at a fast pace and is full of drama that always keeps you turning the pages.' * Chicklish * 'This story captured my interest from the beginning and I was thrilled that it got better and better as I read.

A moving, honest & most of all positive story about friendship, family & trust. Will make you laugh and cry. * Shop! Scotland * A touching debut * First News * 'Another authentic drama for young teens.' * The Bookseller * cannot fail to grip... a nail-biting page-turner. * Cornishman * Full of menace and suspense, this is a compulsive read with bags of teen appeal. * Peters Gazette * Will keep you gripped from start to finish. * Western Morning Series * A novel affording considerable insight into the maelstrom of adolescent infatuation and its accompanying traumas. * School Librarian * A gripping read from start to finish. * Birmingham Post * A real teenage page-turner. Fans of Chris Higgins will love this latest drama. * Sunday Express * The sort of book you try to read in one go, just to find out what happens. A thoroughly satisfying read. * Booktrust *
