Out Of Her Depth by Lizzy Barber
Patricia Highsmith meets E. Lockhart in Out of her Depth - a simmering summer thriller about the choices you make as a teenager, and what happens when they go horribly wrong.
There are summers that could change your life.
There are summers that could end it.
An unassuming young woman from a quiet London suburb.
Picture the scene:
A summer job at the beautiful Villa Medici in the Tuscan hills.
A group of glamorous teenagers, used to a life of privilege.
Lavish parties, heady sun-soaked days, backstabbing and bedhopping.
Until someone goes too far.
And nothing will ever be the same.
