Angela Patrick | 5 comments I read this book about 7 years ago.

The book is set as though the two girls are sitting on a porch telling the retired police detective what has happened. He is a friendly character to them and one of the only people they trust and respect (other than each other).

The two girls become friends - one is from a chaotic home, where there are no rules and her family parties all the time. She hates her home life, but the other girl loves it and quickly becomes a part of it, not realising how dangerous it is. The second is raped one evening in the living room by her friend's brother. After he leaves, she cuts her arm.

Later on in the story the two girls decide to set up a girl they don't like, to be raped by the brother but it goes wrong.

I don't remember what happens after that.

Any ideas would be very helpful.
