Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party. When Healy High star quarterback, Brandon Fitzsimmons, dies in a car crash, it was because he was sexting with Alice. Ask anybody.
Rumor has it Alice Franklin is a slut. It's written all over the "slut stall" in the girls' bathroom: "Alice had sex in exchange for math test answers" and "Alice got an abortion last semester." After Brandon dies, the rumors start to spiral out of control. In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students tell all they "know" about Alice--and in doing so reveal their own secrets and motivations, painting a raw look at the realities of teen life. But in this novel from Jennifer Mathieu, exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there's only one person to ask: Alice herself.

Ich liebe Geschichten, in denen eine Figur durch Rufmord zum Außenseiter oder zur Außenseiterin wird. Vorzugsweise Geschichten, in denen alle Charaktere Jugendliche sind. Ich weiß nicht, warum das so ist; vielleicht wirkt meine eigene Teenie-Zeit noch nach, in der ich eine deutliche Schwäche für Hig...
