Description

Lexi’s angry. And it’s getting worse. If only she could stop losing her temper, her step-father would accept her, her mum would love her again, and her step-brother would return her feelings. She wants these things so badly, she tries to push her fury down.

But it isn’t easy. Her rage is there for a reason. And if she stays quiet – she might just lose herself…
