This is a book about childhood bullying written from the bully's perspective. Laura and her friends made Heddy's life a nightmare- but her father continued to insist that she accompany Heddy to ballet and brownies.

Out of the blue Heddy's mum calls her and asks for her help. Heddy has suffered a breakdown and is in hospital. She wants Laura's help to get her home again. She reluctantly gets drawn in- and reveals images of the past. Her seemingly perfect world begins to unravel and the 'friends' she has draw away.

It was very well written- but such a sensitive subject. You don't feel sorry for Laura- because she's living a very superficial life and is still the sort of person who has the malicious thoughts about people who don't fit into the 'perfect' mould.
