Two girls: One stuck in limbo; one stuck in a rut. Can they help each other get to where they need to be?
Polly and Meg are two girls who live in the same town but don't know each other...yet.
Polly is a spiky, funny teenager stuck in limbo following a car crash. Her days are spent bobbing around aimlessly or watching her family, until one day she is drawn to Meg - a young woman stuck in a dead-end job, with the boss from hell; the monstrous Harriet who has a terrible temper, terrible wardrobe and terrible, terrible hair.
Meg has a history of dealing with her problems in a damaging way - she has a history of self harm - but believes herself to be coping, feeling safe in her dull routine. But how will she cope when the foxy Camilla, the bully who plagued her school days, gets a job in her office? Can Meg deal with her new colleague? Is it really Polly's mission to help Meg get through it without hurting herself? And what of the mystery surrounding Polly's accident - is everything really as it seems? Who will end up helping - or hurting - who? Can either of the girls escape from their own personal Limbo?
