Maja Norberg is eighteen years old and on trial for her involvement in the massacre where her boyfriend and best friend were killed.

But how did Maja, the good girl next door who was popular and excelled at school, become the most hated teenager in the country? What did Maja do? Or is it what she didn't do that brought her here?"--
