A service of the Walter Reed Middle School Library, Reed Reads Book Reviews are created by students and staff. Reviewers provide a rating: 5 = An absolute must read --- 4 = Very good, highly recommended --- 3 = Enjoyable --- 2 = Passable --- 1 = Don't bother. If you would like to join our panel of reviewers, see Mr. Bobrosky in the library. Anyone may post comments, allowing you to provide your own opinion and rating!
Jason is the last to see 7 year old Alicia alive. The police want a suspect and determine, with no evidence, that Jason committed the crime. The police call in Trent, a master of interrogation, who always gets a confession. The interrogation begins, becoming an interrogation that will change both of their lives forever. Powerful and disturbing. Best for mature readers. The last book by the late Robert Cormier, the author who broke new ground in young adult fiction withThe Chocolate War. Reed Reads Score: 4.5
