Amy Anderson has little to complain about, though she’d never admit it. She has loving and patient adoptive parents, a posh new home that could easily be featured in an architecture magazine, and a second chance at life after getting out of juvie. Instead, Amy is a rebellious “bad girl”: oh-so-tough with her dyed-green hair and lip ring, with a penchant for vandalism, sneaking out in the middle of the night, stealing cars, and doing hard drugs. When a local baby-faced blonde named Chloe shows up at the Andersons’ front door and offers her cleaning services, Amy’s parents are thrilled and cross their fingers that the sweet and helpful girl will be a good influence on their ungrateful and destructive daughter. And they’re not the only ones falling under doe-eyed Chloe’s spell. Even Amy tones down her usual antics and starts working towards being a better daughter as she becomes enthralled with this mysterious stranger. Though a little secretive about her own past, Chloe offers to help Amy find her birth parents and always seems to show up at just the right time to help Amy get out of trouble. But the more helpful Chloe becomes, the less it seems like she’s actually trying to help. As Amy and Chloe’s flirtation-tinged friendship develops, a darkness emerges that will have them fighting for their lives. If you liked SINGLE WHITE FEMALE, this edge-of-your seat thriller set in the eerily empty Australian countryside will not disappoint.
