Synopsis

Ginger Snaps by Cathy Cassidy

Gone are the days when Ginger was an outsider, always on the fringes of friendship. She's swapped puppy fat and pigtails for make-up and hair straighteners and never looked back. Ginger and Shannon are best mates, but when they befriend lonely Emily, everything changes. Are Ginger and Shannon drifting apart or can they stay best friends forever?
