Publisher: Little, Brown & Co.
Release Date: October 21, 2008

I skipped the first 10 pages, read the next 50, and finally decided this book just isn't for me. I should say up front that I am not a big Anita Shreve fan. I've only read one other book of hers, A Wedding in December, which I thought was OK.

Shreve wrote this book after watching the events unfold related to the Duke rape case. The book is set at a New England boarding school and details the fallout from students involved in a shocking sex scandal caught on videotape. The scandal has a huge impact on the town, the administrators, the parents, and of course the students themselves.

I've read a book by her before I started blogging but I can't remember what the title was or even what it was about!

I can't wait to read this one. I love Shreve, and I've read all her books. I'm glad you were honest in your review.
