Lessons From A Dead Girl

Candlewick Press





From the publisher: 

“An unflinching story of a troubled friendship -- and one girl’s struggle to come to terms with secrets and shame and find her own power to heal.”


“A razor-sharp examination of friendship, abuse and secrets.”



“[Readers will] be riveted by this haunting story of a girl’s journey to understanding, which culminates in a final lesson from her old friend: ‘The truth belongs to you.” —Booklist


“The concise, clear style of this short novel belies the sophistication of it’s subject matter. Knowles sheds valuable light on the long-term emotional impact of child abuse and the roots of sexual abuse among peers.” School Library Journal
