Brilliantly conveyed breakdown of the relationships encircling 16yr old Jinx at a time when everything is change and confusion, coming of age as her mother enters a new relationship after the two of them have been a unit for 10 years.
14 years have passed, suddenly she is revisited by all the emotion, denial, rage and anger of the past, when her mother's lover's friend Lemon turns up one weekend to talk.

Intense and provocative beginning that gives just enough to pique interest and make the reader question why.
An old friend of her mother arrives with the news "he's out". Jinx's 5 yr old son arrives for the weekend, a shared custody, it goes badly, she is reactive, he is upset.
Jinx tries on one of her mother's coats. A vision.
The weekend has only just begun, it's going to be a long one.
