Honor and Evie: cousins and best friends, yet so very different. Honor is intelligent, beautiful and popular - good fortune seems to fall into her lap. But for Evie life is harder. Honor adores Evie for her unconventionality, her honesty and her naughty sense of humour - although others find Evie prickly and impatient. And Evie loves Honor for her calmness, her loyalty and absolute integrity - traits that some might find a little too predictable, even a little dull...But as Honor and Evie leave girlhood behind, their friendship is tested to its limit. Can they still remain close when their choices and ideals are so very different? Or are these women destined to grow in opposite directions, grow up and grow apart?
