A powerful, erotic love story involving three unforgettable teenage girls. Paulie, Tory and Mouse share a relationship deeper than sexuality and a love that is intensified in the hothouse atmosphere of an all-girl boarding school. Mouse leaves a small-town upbringing to attend Perkins Girl's College. Her two senior roommates, the striking, sharp-witted Paulie and the charming, beautiful Tory, quickly adopt her. The girls become inseparable, but, although they are the closest friends Mouse has ever had, she is confused by the depth of the emotional and sexual relationship between Paulie and Tory. Their world shatters when Tory and Paulie are caught in bed together. Terrified that her family will find out, Tory distances herself from Paulie, and her own feelings. Defiantly refusing to submit, Paulie battles to keep Tory. And Mouse is left torn between her friends. Through this sensual and violent struggle, Mouse glimpses how powerful love can be, and how impossible it is to define.
