Can the course of friendship or love ever run true when everyone has something to hide? Lizzy Swift is a senior in high school, emerging from her nerd chrysalis to become a social butterfly. She's dating Matt Ashley, the boy who's been out of her reach since freshman year. Her bold, reckless new friend Claire Reynolds introduces her to Center City Philadelphia-clubs, street life, and the eye-opening art scene. And her Ivy League ambitions take a backseat to nights of partying, dancing, and dating. But almost as quickly, the heady delight of Lizzy's new life is clouded by doubts and deceptions. While she has a special connection with Matt, it's not the perfect romance she dreamed of. Claire carries around a mysterious sadness and talks about a breakup so bad she changed schools-but she won't tell Lizzy the whole story. Lizzy wants Claire to confide in her, even as she keeps her own embarrassing secrets from her new best friend. Will the truth come to light before it's too late for Lizzy, Claire, and Matt to save their love and friendships?
