I was brave
She was reckless
We were trouble

Best friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie – confident, funny and interesting. Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated. As Suzanne’s past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be. But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realises, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own.

My Review 4 stars

Caddy and Rosie are best friends nothing can get between them. Suzanne is trying to be someone different by running from her past.

The themes that run through this book is abuse and family issues. I am so happy my friend gave me this to read. I don’t think I’ve read a book quite like this one.

Caddy is the quiet one however she wants to be more. Caddy goes to a private school, she has a good relationship with her older sister. I really liked her. Rosie goes to a normal school where she has her own group of friends. When Rosie first began to mention Suzanne Caddy was jealous at first I mean who wouldn’t be a little bit. Suzanne has had a rough up bringing there is no denying that. When Caddy discovers what has happened and why she lives with her aunt something clicks between them.

Over time they bond together Suzanne needs her even if that means walking the streets in the middle of the night so she can talk. However Suzanne makes Caddy do some reckless things stuff she wouldn’t have done with Rosie. Caddy parents don’t want them seeing each other any longer that might of done more harm than good. When Caddy parents were telling her this I really wanted her to speak up.

Something terrible happens at the end that I’m not going into it as I don’t want to give anything away but lets say that things happen for a reason.

Overall this book was a good read the pacing was fast and the writing style draws you in I would highly recommend this to you.
