Marcella and Teresa - niece and aunt. Two sides of the same coin: smart, funny, feisty - and on a collision course. Fifteen-year-old Marcella is determined not to make the mistakes of the women she knows. Not to be a drudge like her mother. Nor a factory girl like her sisters. And certainly not to get trapped with a baby like Teresa. But Marcella is about to learn a few lessons about life. Teresa is Marcella's biggest cheerleader until her own crazy life goes out of control. Wanting a man she shouldn't want, neglecting a son she adores, agonising about the sister - Marcella's mother - who seems to have given up on living, bedding the wrong men, drinking too much; she's thirty-one, acts like a teenager and feels like a tart. By turns, funny, sexy and heart-breaking, "Some Girls Will" is the story of a fateful year in the lives of two irrepressible women. A year when their loyalty to each other is tested beyond endurance and they discover the real meaning of family, friendship and love.
