To the casual eye, teenagers Jane and Beverley are opposites. Wealthy, beautiful and clever, Beverley seems to have everything. But disturbed and lonely Jane has just seen her mother die in appalling circumstances, and has been sent to live with her grandparents in the same small town as Beverley - by the sea in Underlyme, Dorset.
But Beverley's life isn't as perfect as it seems...Behind the glossy fa ade, it's anything but. And when something terrible happens, she finds there's nobody left to turn to - except Jane.
Initially, Beverley finds solace in Jane's total adoration. But gradually she begins to realise there is something different, something dark about Jane. Little does she know just how different, and just how dark she may be...
