Touch

What really happened at the back of the bus?
Did they, or didn’t they?
Did she, or didn’t she?

Something happened to fourteen-year-old Maisie Willard—something involving her three friends, all boys. But their stories don’t match, and the rumors spin out of control. Then other people get involved . . . the school, the parents, the lawyers. The incident at the back of the bus becomes the center of Maisie’s life and the talk of the school, and, horribly, it becomes news. With just a few words and a touch, the kids and their community are changed forever.

From nationally acclaimed author Francine Prose comes an unforgettable story about the difficulties of telling the truth, the consequences of lying, and the most dangerous twist of all—the possibility that you yourself will come to believe something that you know isn’t true.

My Thoughts: Wooah, I REALLY wanna know what happened on the back of that bus now. It sounds like a sensational read. Hmmm, nice colors on the cover too.


Listening To: nothing actually… for once.
Thinking: uggh, I am stressed about college.
