'Bad things happen. Fight to make things right. Or let it wreck your life.

'Tamara Bennett is going to be the first journalist to strictly report only good news. Finished with high school, Tamara is ready to say goodbye to her sleepy little town and part-time job at the local paper. O-weeks awaits, which means parties, cute boys and settling into student res with her best friend Relle. Things take an unexpected turn, however, when she arrives home to find her house ransacked and her life in danger. What is this mysterious note? And why does it mean so much to one of Australia’s most powerful media moguls?

'Caught between a bitter rivalry and dangerous family secret, who can Tamara trust? Or should she trust herself? ' (Publication summary)
