Asking for a Friend

Kate Mallinder

As exams loom, three friends go away on a break that is supposedly about studying but is more about getting away from their problems. They soon find that they have taken the problems with them. Can they help each other to confront and deal with what faces them? Serious yet uplifting, this is told from the point of view of three very different characters as they deal with issues ranging from mental illness, loss and anxieties about exams and social media.
