9780152061906: Looking for JJ

Three children walked away from the cottages on the edge of the town towards Berwick Waters. Later that day only two of them came back. Alice Tully knows exactly what happened that spring day six years ago - though it's still hard for her to believe it's real. The images, the sounds and the aftermath are imprinted on her memory. She'll never be able to forget, even though she's trying to lead a normal life. She's making a go of things, putting her past behind her at last. But Alice's past is dangerous, and violent, and sad - and it's about to rip her new life apart.

Product Description:

A gripping and emotionally searing novel from a talented author, Looking for JJ explores the circumstances and motives behind the murder of a child - by her friend. Six years later, JJ has now been released, and has a new identity. But is there any way that she can lead a "normal" life?

Review:

“Compassionate, unsensational and unflinching." (The Guardian)

"An astonishing book." (The Bookseller)

“Dark, chilling and clever … Anne Cassidy reminds me of Minette Walters or Ruth Rendell.” (Celia Rees)

"Shirley Barthelmie's voice is easy to listen to and her narration is excellent. Her drama background is obvious in the way she develops the characters with accents and emphasis. She reads at a suitable pace, matching the plot. Technically, the introductory music for each disc sets the scene for an intriguing mystery. For reluctant teenage female readers, this audiobook will be very popular." (Fiction Focus)

"The search for JJ is a multilayered story, told with dexterity by Shirley Barthelmie. JJ (Jennifer Jones) is a teen pursued by the London tabloids, as well as by her own demons, since she was convicted at the age of 10 of killing her best friend. Released from prison and working to establish a new life, she is both a normal teenager with a boyfriend and plans for college and a victim of her past. Cassidy travels from present to past with alacrity as the events that led to the murder are revealed in recollected scenes interspersed amid JJ's preoccupations with work and romance. Suspense is heightened by background music and Barthelmie's matter-of-fact recounting." (AudioFile Magazine)
