But Lizzy hadn't counted on Ellie's boyfriend coming along for the ride. Steve is a convicted juvenile criminal and, more importantly for Lizzy, his colours are bad. For as long as she can remember, Lizzy had seen bands of colour around people. Some were good, some not so; Steve's colours were almost black. And, as Lizzy predicts, the journey does not lead to happiness . . .
