This is Sophie's journey through her eyes as she falls in love, falls into depression, and finally falls off the edge.
Sugar Coated is a journey of self-discovery and hopelessness, which follows Sophie, a young woman who is trying to find her place in the world. When she stumbles upon Ben on the London underground, she knows her life will never be the same again.
Ben seems to be everything she has ever wished for, charming, romantic - perfect; he doesn’t seem to have a single flaw. For a while things are great, until the day Ben’s bad news causes him to reveal that flaw Sophie had been searching for and she can’t help but wish it had never been uncovered.
After having alienated everyone who ever cared about her Sophie is left with no one to turn to when things go from bad to worse. When she’s reacquainted with a familiar face from her past, and an unusual bond is formed, certain relationships are bound to both flourish and falter.
Small misgivings and simple misunderstandings cause Sophie to re-evaluate her situation and set her down a path that can lead to only one end. How deep will Sophie sink before she begins the long, hard struggle to get out?
