From the Series Lorimer SideStreets
Marcus has it all: charm, good looks, successful parents, endless opportunities and anything money can buy. Along with his best friends, he escapes to his parents’ chalet during a school trip. When the three decide to ditch the rest of the group and ski out of bounds, the thrill is extreme—until Yasmin dies going over a cliff and Tom is left paraplegic. To Marcus’s horror, the school decides to blame and expel Tom rather than face the power of Marcus’s father and his lawyers. Can he live with the guilt, or should he turn his back on his perfect life and face up to the consequences of his actions?
