Lucy is in Year 12 and under pressure to succeed. The last thing she needs now is an intense boyfriend. Breaking up with Carl feels like the only way to keep her dreams on track.

But good decisions can have bad consequences.

And leaving Carl is going to be a whole lot harder than Lucy could ever have imagined.
