To 18 year old Emma Slater, New York, England, is her whole life. It's where she grew up, the streets she played on, the streets she learnt to walk on, the streets she rode her first bike on. It's home.
But it's also the streets where she dealt drugs. The streets where her gambling almost got her killed. The streets where she fell in love with Elise Elderflower, the beautiful art teacher she was sure had been sent from hell to tip her over the edge, sending her spiralling into a black abyss.
Until one day, Elise disappears. Twenty years later, they meet again.
