Nell feels she’s at the edge of everyone’s life, even her own. Her frantically busy single mother sends Nell to stay with an aunt she’s never met, who lives in the country. Life takes on a very different turn, particularly when Nell meets the spiky and difficult Angel, a girl with a past. Not only does she meet Angel, she gets involved with Angel’s attempt to save horses from the meat trade, and learns a lot about herself, and Angel, in the process.
