Christine and Danelle have been best friends forever, a relationship as seemingly infinite as the glow-in-the-dark stars they have stuck to their bedroom ceilings. But lately Danelle’s quirky moods have turned into wild and reckless acts, driving the girls further and further apart. At first Christine wonders whether her friend is on drugs, but what kind of drugs make you climb a rooftop one minute and send you into the depths of despair the next? As the complex and dangerous truth behind Danelle’s ups and downs becomes clear, the girls’ friendship is put to the ultimate test.
