La verdad

Orca Book Publishers | Spanish Soundings


Cuando un vecino adulto es brutalmente asesinado durante una fiesta de la preparatoria, todos en la escuela parecen saber quién lo hizo, pero nadie habla con la policía. Jen estuvo ahí, vio el cuerpo y tiene sus propias ideas sobre el posible culpable. Como es la reportera del programa de TV escolar, decide descubrir la verdad y averiguar si un estudiante que cada vez se comporta de forma más violenta podría ser el responsable. Cuando Jen y sus compañeros excavan demasiado profundo, la violencia se desencadena en la pequeña comunidad. Finalmente Jen tendrá que ponerse firme, y puede ser que le cueste mucho más de lo que se imagina.

La otra vida de Caz

Orca Book Publishers | Spanish Soundings


Caz tuvo una muy buena razón para darle un puñetazo en la cara a su novio, pero aun así es expulsada. En su nueva escuela le dicen que es disléxica y que estará en el salón de educación especial. Caz trata de integrarse y de sobrellevar las burlas y el abuso con que otros jóvenes tratan a los estudiantes de su grupo. Mientras tanto, su amistad con Amanda la lleva a nuevos territorios: a faltar a la escuela y a robar. Como a todo eso se suma la inminente separación de sus padres, su vida simplemente se está saliendo de control.

Moving to a new school, she is told she is dyslexic and sent to special education classes.

Her friendship with Amanda leads her into new territory—shoplifting and skipping school. Coupled with her parents' impending separation, her life is spiraling out of control.

Truth

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Soundings


When an adult neighbor is brutally murdered during a high-school house party, everyone in school seems to have an idea who did it, but no one will go to the police. Jen was there and saw the body and she has her own ideas about who is responsible. As a reporter for the school TV show, she decides to try and uncover the truth and discover if a classmate's increasingly violent behavior is to blame. When she and others begin digging too deeply, violence flares in the small community. Finally, Jen is forced to take a stand, one that may cost her more than she could imagine.
