Truth and Skye are just like all their high-school friends. They love to drive cars, they love to party, and they booze it up whenever they can. And when the two girls find summer jobs at the local pizza shop, they see no reason to change their habits. They befriend Vale, a co-worker who is grateful for their attention. But the two really only have eyes for Vale's car, which she will get as soon as she passes her driving exam. Cars mean freedom - freedom to go where they want and do what they please. Truth doesn't know why, but she can't seem to get what she really wants. And she wants Ryan, the seriously handsome guy who works at the pizza oven. Truth's reckless behavior does catch his attention, but not in a good way. And as the summer progresses, Truth watches herself gradually lose control in a series of self-destructive acts. One day she'll be about to stop but will that day come too late? A gripping story - by the author of the critically acclaimed Edge - Blue Highway explores teen alcoholism in a way that is neither didactic nor judgmental. Once again Diane Tullson demonstrates a keen awareness of what drives ordinary teenagers in trouble - their loyalties, their petty jealousies and that aching sense of isolation that make them withdraw from the world.
