Heartache and Other Natural ShocksBook - 2015
Fifteen-year-old Julia Epstein feels her life is over when her family moves from Montreal in the early 1970s to what she considers a suburban wasteland outside Toronto. As her world starts to unravel, Julia meets her new neighbor, the brash and uninhibited Carla Cabrielli, who works her "assets" and knows how to get what she wants. Their instant dislike for each other quickly turns to loathing when they realize they are vying for not only the same role in the school production of Hamlet, but also for the same bad boy--the hot, sword-wielding Ian Slater.
