Trace is a campus novel-in-progress that follows two 22-year-old business school students as they jump through many hoops to stay friends and graduate from university in one piece. The childhood best friends are revealed to be divided by their social standing amongst their university peers. Trace explores the nuances and intricacies of female friendships while rejecting the stereotype that women are unable to maintain lasting relationships with one another.
