Coralline Streef's best friend committed suicide eight months ago. She's depressed, drained, angry and absolutely sick of all the pity she receives. And then Max falls into her life, well more like runs into her life. When they first meet, he takes two drags of her cigarette and manages to catch her name, whilst in the middle of running from the police. Coralline isn't quite sure what to think of Max at first, besides the fact that he is undeniably good-looking.. She doesn't know where he came from or what school he goes to, if he even goes to a school. You see, Coralline isn't the only one who has secrets. And when they meet again, Coralline realises she can't get rid of Max that easily.
