Somewhere In Between

The exams are finally over, the sun is shining and celebration is in the air. For twins Chloe and Alex the future looks bright, if a bit uncertain. But turbulence is not far from the horizon. It begins when Alex is in a car crash on the way home from a drinking binge with friends. Miraculously he escapes with just cuts and bruises, but the driver's life hangs in the balance. Alex tells himself it's only a matter of time before his friend 'wakes up', but his free and easy ways are put to the ultimate test over the dramatic weeks to follow. For Chloe, insecurities begin chip away at the edges of her 'balanced' world: her relationship with Sam, her drama school chances, her weight. Her friends are worried that she's getting too thin. But thin is not what Chloe sees when she looks in the mirror. A holiday to Ayia Napa with the gang promises to be the escape everyone needs, the ideal bridge between school and ... real life. But as the party rages on, Alex and Chloe realise that there are some things that you can't escape from - as they struggle to find the somewhere at the other side of somewhere in between.

Pretty and popular, Eva Coonan has everything to look forward to - that is until her dad dies suddenly and her whole world falls apart. Just as Eva starts to wonder if she will every feel normal again, Killian - the good-looking rugby winger - catches her eye. But she soon realises that all is not what it seems and that the only person she can really talk to is Zac, who somehow always seems to know the right thing to say. But cute, scruffy, guitar-mad Zac has his own problems. Not only has he to deal with being 'the new guy' at school, but his father is a total bully and he is fast running out of ways to protect his mother. As things heat up, choices have to be made. Eva learns that the right thing to do can often be the hardest - and that true love will always wait.
