Eva is 16 and in love for the first time! She’s really looking forward to a romantic weekend with her boyfriend Julian. But the journey to the holiday home turns into a nightmare: late at night, alone on a woodland path, she witnesses a boy being threatened and beaten up by a gang of teenagers. She is completely distraught – all the more so because Julian seems oddly dismissive of the whole incident. To make matters worse, on the way there, she lost her diary which contains her big secret: she is having therapy because she suffers from dizzy spells and anxiety attacks.

Before long she discovers that Julian is friends with the muggers. How can Eva still trust him? And she begins to wonder whether all this might be connected with the girl who has been missing for days. And then she starts receiving anonymous blackmail-letters from someone who knows all about her most intimate feelings and is going to use them against her …
