As the two be­come in­sep­a­ra­ble, Cat gets swept up in mar­lena’s life of tru­ancy, drugs, and al­co­hol— un­til the lat­ter is found dead, drowned in six inches of icy river wa­ter. years later, Cat still strug­gles to move on. Julie Buntin’s de­but novel is a nu­anced take on the com­plex­i­ties of fe­male friend­ship, and how our de­ci­sions de­ter­mine the peo­ple we be­come.
