When Avalon moves to the city her life is turned upside down. Starting at a new high school, she finds herself at the centre of a brutal cyber-bullying campaign. She is inundated with obscene texts, and subject to increasingly vicious posts, as things spiral out of control. Miserable and isolated, Avalon relies on a small group of new friends. But as the threats escalate, is anyone safe?
