Charlottetown teen Tage seems to have it all: she hangs out with the school’s most popular clique and has a handsome boyfriend. She’s also living a lie about her sexuality.

Wren, a nonbinary schoolmate, has been the victim of bullying by Tage’s clique, which leaves Tage racked by guilt because she’s always been drawn to Wren. When Tage picks up Wren during a snowstorm and they are forced to spend a night together, their true feelings emerge.

With Wren’s support, Tage had to decide whether to come out to celebrate herself and her new relationship.

This novel deals with the place of sexual and gender identify in a contemporary high school setting. The role of bullying in female peer groups is explored, and so is how bullying can become a dysfunctional habit to repress a person’s true feelings.
