Originally published: Canada: Key Porter, 2001.

After years of disappointment, 49-year-old Isla is finally content in her second marriage to Lyle. 17-year-old Roddy, on the other hand, is a faltering student, and occasional shoplifter trying to make sense of his life.

Their worlds collide one hot August afternoon when a fake robbery organised by Roddy and his friend Mike goes horribly wrong, leaving Isla with a bullet lodged in her spine.

With Roddy 'immobilised' in gaol and Isla lying paralysed in hospital, they both have lots of time to reflect upon where it all went wrong.

A book that explores the bad things that happen to good people - a hugely entertaining read about turning points, second chances, the human ability to adapt & survive.
