"If there's anything good that can come out of this horrible situation - if I have to die - at least someday you can write about it and make us both famous."

At five years old, the only thing Chelsea had ever said to Lucy was 'I don't want to be your friend, freckle-face!' But then the girls learned a simple, magical thing: they had been born less than 24 hours apart only days before Christmas, at the same hospital. This moment of delight drew them together and fastened them like glue.

At twelve they painted their faces and made their own commercials; at eighteen they threw the party that made high school history. At twenty-one their friendship was tested in a way they could never have imagined.

By twenty-four, Chelsea had disappeared forever.

Your early twenties are difficult to enough without illness and death thrown into the mix, but sometimes life happens before you've had time to make other plans. In this raw, honest and achingly passionate testament to female friendship, Lucy indulges in one last long, winding chat with the memory of her best friend, revisiting their shared memories and coming to grips with the future whilst navigating the deep, dark well of grief for the first time.

About the Author

Lucy Moffatt is a writer and English Language teacher from Adelaide, happily settled back home after several years of wanderlust, including visits to more than 20 countries and a working holiday in Japan.

After watching Harriet the Spy at six years old, Lucy declared to everybody who would listen that when she grew up she was going to be a writer. She developed her voice through 1-page illustrated novels about the Sydney 2000 Olympics mascot Millie, essays about the musical relationship between Andy Warhol's Factory and The Velvet Underground's first album, fanfiction, diaries and short stories developed during her Bachelor of Arts, until finally reaching her first book: a memoir about friendship and loss.
