Isn't it odd how the truly significant moments of your life often begin as the most banal? There you are, just minding your own business, doing something boring and ordinary like buying a KitKat or, in my case, catching the number 29 bus home from work, and Boom - the most momentous and life-changing event happens to you! You don't have time to rehearse or prepare or compose yourself. You don't even have time to change your top. Naomi is restless. She's on her gap year and stuck at home with her parents while all her friends are traveling or away at university. Then she meets Danny, a mysterious and intense musician who opens her eyes to a whole new world around her. Danny is exciting and talented, and his band is on the brink of stardom. But he also has a dark, destructive side...Will Naomi be able to save Danny before it's too late? And, more importantly, can she save herself?
