Touching Earth Lightly
Janey's background is grim - lock-the-door-at-night-type grim - but nothing weighs her down for long. She's wild, sexy, reckless, funny. Being friends with Janey is a roller-coaster ride - never dull, often risky.
Chloe is the steady one; she anchors Janey as much as she can. But just how far can friendship go? That question is shockingly, brutally answered when Janey's world catches up with her.
An extraordinary story of friendship, loss and love, from the author of The Best Thing.
