A Word from the Author
Beth shouldn’t be falling apart; it’s Faye’s true love who has killed himself, not hers. But the way Jack died is filling her head with noise. Will Jack’s actions push her over the edge? And what about Faye? Is Ethan the reason she’s coping? And is she really coping – on the inside? Why does Abbie need to walk away at the moment Beth needs her the most? And is the usually timid Olivia strong enough to support them all?
The Second Cup follows the lives of four friends as they each struggle to come to terms with Jack’s suicide.
