When they're thrown together as roommates in their first "real world" apartment, it initially seems to be an uneasy fit. But as Biddy's past resurfaces and Quincy faces a harrowing experience that no one should have to go through alone, the two of them realize that they might have more in common than they thought -- and more important, that they might be able to help each other move forward.<P> Hard-hitting and compassionate, Girls Like Us is a story about growing up in a world that can be cruel, and finding the strength -- and the support -- to carry on.
