15-year-old Livia thrives on one emotion: fury. She is furious about their parents who talk about divorce, furious about her body, her friends, her life, the world. Her horse is her only friend. When she falls in love with a married firefighter, infatuation turns into raging hatred. A coming-of-age drama of rare intensity about a girl who is already torn between fear, lust, and desperation.
