It is time for a new giveaway! I have 2 copies of The False Friend by Myra Goldberg to giveaway - courtesy of Doubleday Books.
From the bestselling author of Bee Season comes an astonishingly complex psychological drama with a simple setup - two eleven-year-old girls, best friends and fierce rivals, go into the woods. Only one comes out. . .
Leaders of a mercurial clique, Celia and Djuna subjected each other and their three followers to an endless cycle of reward and punishment that peaked one afternoon when all five girls walked home along a forbidden road. Djuna disappeared that day; Celia blocked out what happened. It was assumed that Djuna was abducted, though neither she nor her abductor was ever found.
Twenty years later, Celia and her boyfriend Huck are professionally successful, but their relationship is in stasis. When Celia's memory of that terrible day returns, she confronts her own responsibility for her best friend's disappearance and returns to her hometown to confess. Her aging parents - their love handicapped by a lifetime of reserve - insist that she is innocent. Her childhood friends don't believe her. Huck wants to be supportive, but he can't ignore all that contradicts Celia's version of the past.
Deeply resonant and emotionally charged, The False Friend explores the adults that children become -- leading us to question the truths that we accept or reject, and the lies to which we succumb.
