Meet Bess: a cute and quirky sound artist for feature films with a punk rock past and a penchant for pop philosophy. Meet Maxine: a sleek and strapping journalist whos privileged to the point of confusion. Both women work in Hollywood North, and the two have been best friends for sixteen years. Cut to New Years Day 2000, where the story opens with a headache and a hangover. Bess finds herself facing thirty-five, single, struggling to make ends meet and stuck with a bad case of the existential blues. Meanwhile, Maxi has just landed a new job, a new home and a hot new man. But the tables turn when Maxis relationship begins to sour and Bess finds happiness in all the right places. The two begin to drift and, by Valentines Day 2000, sixteen years of friendship turns in to six weeks of toxic. Smart, savvy and sexy, Six Weeks to Toxic is a wildly witty debut novel that delves into the complex world of female friendships gone awry. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Six Weeks to Toxic will be donated to CODE, a Canadian charitable organization that has been promoting education and literacy in the developing world for more than 40 years.
