I spot my mother's car approaching me. I see her wave, and smile as our eyes lock. Then as if slow motion, the most horrific scene plays out before my eyes. The van switches lanes once again right into my mother's path. The look on her face as she steps on the brakes shows she has realised it's too late, the car ploughs into the van at such speed she has no time to react. I watch in horror as my mother flies forward. I close my eyes and crumble to the ground, shielding my vision, not wanting to see the scene continue to play out. Hearing metal on metal as screams fill the air it's then I realise it's me who is screaming. 

My name is Debbie Conway, I am thirteen years old and from the day I witnessed my mother's death I could think of little else. To ease my pain, I spent more time in my dream world, in the arms of Joshua Lawson, the guy from the poster above my bed, and starring in my favourite T.V show, Victor. 

Meet my best friend Wendy, former best friend and school bully Karen and a boy who will confuse my love for Joshua Lawson, Mark Hobson. He's a new student from America, whose accent alone sends shivers up and down my spine.

What's the "it" you are referring to? Her hair? Or her body?
