Descriere

When her best guy friend falls victim to a vicious hate crime, sixteen-year-old Cat sets out to discover who in her small town did it. Richly atmospheric, this daring mystery mines the secrets of a tightly knit Southern community and examines the strength of will it takes to go against everyone you know in the name of justice. Against a backdrop of poverty, clannishness, drugs, and intolerance, Myracle has crafted a harrowing coming-of-age tale couched in a deeply intelligent mystery. Smart, fearless, and compassionate, this is an unforgettable work from a beloved author. Praise for Shine ""Cat eventually uncovers the truth in a cliffhanging climax in which she confronts fear, discovers that love is stronger than hate and truly 'shines.' Raw, realistic and compelling."" -Kirkus Reviews ""The page-turning mystery and Cat's inspiring trajectory of self-realization will draw readers in and give them plenty to ponder."" -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books ""Dramatic in both content and presentation."" -Los Angeles Times ""Myracle captures well the regret that many feel for things in their past about which they are ashamed. Cat's reflections on these moments are spot-on."" -School Library Journal AWARD: WINNER: Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award for young adult fiction YALSA 2014 Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults
