At their New England art school, Paulina and Fran both stand apart from the crowd. Paulina is striking and sexually adventurous - a self-proclaimed queen bee with a devastating mean-girl streak.

An aspiring painter whose potential outstrips her confidence, she floats dreamily through criticisms and dance floors alike. On a school trip to Norway, the girls are drawn together, each disarmed by the other's charisma. But, though their bond is instant and powerful, it's also wracked by complications...

At twenty-one, Tallulah Park lives alone in a grimy bedsit, where a strange damp smell causes her to wake up wheezing. When she finds out her estranged father has had a heart attack and arranges to visit him, she isn't looking forward to seeing her relatives again. Years before, she was being tossed around her difficult family: a world of sniping aunts, precocious cousins, emigrant pianists and lots of gin, all presided over by an unconventional grandmother. But no one was answering Tallie's questions: why did Aunt Vivienne loathe Tallie's mother? Who was Uncle Jack, and why would no one talk about him? And why was everyone making excuses for her absent father? As Tallie grows up, she learns the hard way that in the end, the worst betrayals are those we inflict on ourselves...
