Like a punch in the guts, this compelling novel paints an unforgettable portrait of a young girl struggling to cope with a desperately unhappy home life and her unpredictable and vicious outbursts of anger. In the style of John Marsden's “Letters from the Inside”, this is a confronting and provocative novel that will linger long in your memory.Mara is carrying something she can barely control: a red, wild, all-consuming rage. Rage at her mother, who is drowning in depression; anger at her father, who is allowing himself to be bullied at work; anger at the sly insinuations of her school mates; anger at the barriers she rails against. Her only ray of hope is Tibor. When she's with him, everything seems different and the world bigger. So when she sees Tibor with another girl, all Mara's fuses blow. She hits out - grimly, hard. And this time there is no happy ending.
