Sixteen-year-old Jude has to get out of tiny Churchtown. She has to escape her outcast status at the Royal Duchy School and her pathetic dad, who hasn t gotten past her mum s death. The only bright light is drama, her way out, if only she can get into the Lab in London. It takes a lot of nerve to apply to such a prestigious program, and Jude s not sure she can do it. Then Judes s childhood best friend, Stella, returns. Stella, sexy and bold, and ten times cooler than Jude. With Stella by her side, Jude knows she s capable of anything. But Stella s influence extends well beyond the theater. She quickly creeps into every part of Jude s life, bringing Jude the attention she s always craved. So even when Stella s behavior takes a dangerous turn, Jude can t bring herself to abandon her best friend. And anyway, now that Stella s back, there s no stopping her. In Jude s dark and tangled story, Joanna Nadin explores the aftermath of loss and the consequences of becoming the person you always wished you were."
