Sophia Armitage has a secret that will make everyone see her differently. She’s a decent girl from a good family. They have worked hard to end up on ‘the right side of the tracks’ in the central north island town of Hamilton in New Zealand.
But things are never quite what they seem and for the troubled teen, life at the failing high school in the north of the city starts to horribly unravel. Finally pushed too far by a group of girls whose only purpose in life is to make her existence a misery, Sophia is forced to fight back, ending in disastrous consequences.
Sophia’s painful crush on Dane McArdle, the alpha male of the poisonous little group from the wrong side of town, unleashes a whole host of trouble onto Sophia’s head.
Their families are so different and yet who gets to decide which side of the tracks is the right side and once you’ve landed on the wrong side, what will be the cost of crossing back over?
About the Author
K T Bowes lives in New Zealand between the Hakarimata Ranges and the Waikato River, where many of her novels are set. Raised in England to soldiering parents, she has lived in four different countries, settling in New Zealand in 2006 with her husband and four children. The dumbest thing she ever did was jump out of a plane at 2000 feet, attached to a fragile piece of silk because a friend asked her to. The best thing she ever did was marry her husband after knowing him only a few months and the scariest thing was arriving at Auckland Airport with a one-way ticket, four small children and a suitcase each.
K T Bowes loves painting Folk Art and landscapes as well as writing. She shares her home with her husband, a fickle ginger cat and often a crazy horse or two in the paddock.
