From the first moment of their meeting, Delia Blaine is fascinated by Amandine. A dancer, an artist, and an actress, Amandine never fails to astonish Delia with her bold, thrilling antics. Her skits and stories keep the school day fun and unpredictable, and draw shy Delia into a colorful world of improvisation and make-believe. As the games Amandine invents and the lies she tells evolve to include behavior that is more cruel and disturbing, Delia begins to mistrust, and then to fear Amandine. It is not until Delia finds the strength she needs to break away, however, that she realizes how tightly Amandine has pulled her in, and what gaining her freedom will cost her.
A novel about friendship, revenge, and the darker side of human nature.
