Straight-laced Candy McFarlane encounters life on the edge when she
starts hanging out with some cool older kids and finds herself in
over her head.
Candy is thirteen, living in Saskatoon with her parents, her
little brother "Carboy," and Murphy the dog. She is tired of
waiting for Grade 8 to end, her mom's constant nagging, and Gerald
the geek hurling insults from across the street. She starts hanging
out with some new and exciting friends - friends her mother
wouldn't approve of.
