Faye had never felt like an ordinary teenager, but on her seventeenth birthday she began to feel even more like an outcast. All her life she had worked, scrimped and saved every penny after paying the bills and buying the groceries for her and her mother. She never went out, brought new boots, or had much fun, all so she could buy herself a car and no longer had to take the bus to school and work. The day finally came to use it, and it was that day everything started. Humiliated by the actions of her brave new self she speeds away, destroys the car, but more concerning, she’s now seeing and hearing things that just aren’t there. Then there’s the string of obsessive boyfriends around her mother and her own confusion about the new people entering her life. Faye is a teenager all right, but she is about to discover she is so much more.
