A Walk on the Wild Side
Anne is a quiet, obedient, straight-A student. She listens to her parents, and never breaks any rules. She prefers studying over partying, and her idea of a ‘crazy night out’ is a stroll to the library at eight o’clock. She has lived a sheltered, comfortable life. Her parents are wealthy, and she has everything a sixteen-year old could possibly want. Except, that is, excitement. She’s sick and tired of the same old routine. She hates being the goody two-shoes – the boring one. She’s never had a boyfriend and has never kissed a boy. She’s never been drunk or worn high heels. She wishes she could trade her life for a new one.
So, when a troupe of visiting young boys appears in the summer, it’s no surprise that Anne wants anything and everything to do with them. She doesn’t know them, and they don’t know her. She can be anyone she wants to be. Outgoing. Witty. Sexy. All the things she’s not. And when one member of the boys takes a special interest in her, she doesn’t hesitate to give him anything he wants. Even if it means running away with him and his friends, leaving everything behind – her old life, her parents, her secure home. This is what she’d been longing for – adventure ... right? But as things take a turn for the worse, Anne begins to realise that maybe this isn’t what she wants in life ... maybe she wants to go back home. Maybe she wants to be that shy back-of-the-class girl again. Maybe she wants her parents to tell her to get to bed on time...
But it’s much too late to back out now.
(Sorry for the stick in her face.)
