Synopsis

Louise is struggling to survive in New York; juggling a series of poorly paid jobs, renting a shabby flat, being catcalled by her creepy neighbour, she dreams of being a writer.

And then one day she meets Lavinia.

Lavinia, who has everything - looks, money, clothes, friends, an amazing apartment.

Lavinia invites Louise into her charmed circle, takes her to the best underground speakeasies, the opera, shares her clothes, her drugs, her Uber account.

Louise knows that this can't last for ever, but just how far is she prepared to go to have this life?

Or rather, to have Lavinia's life . . .

'So many novels are compared to The Secret History and The Talented Mr. Ripley in the digital age, but in this case it's absolutely justified' - Elle.
