After a fight with the two twin like friends Vicky [ one of these girls ] feels shocked because she walks into the road and into a horrific accident. It soon turns into an upsetting time for Jade. People do not help and neither does Vicky...
You should read this book becuase
In my opinion , someone who might possibly be going through a rough time with their family should read this to cheer themselves up and if at anytime you have an opportunity to read a book you should take it . It is a serious book even though you are free to laugh sometimes at the humorous side of the book. It makes you think about how you should respect others in and out of school.
