~BOOK PREVIEW~ Innocence by Karen Novak


I received this book in the mail yesterday, from a PaperbackSwap member. Of course, I loved the cover! Here is a synopsis:
~The town of Swifton Woods has labored for decades under the stigma of an unsolved series of abductions and abuse and eleven young girls. Leslie Stone, a thirteen year old at the time the abductions began, is now a detective involved in a current scandal; following a party of eighth graders that got out of hand, five boys are being charged with the sexual assault of her daughter's best friend. As connections are made between the two events and the town erupts in anger and cries for justice, Leslie's daughter, Molly, takes the stand to claim that the boys are innocent. Leslie's own investigations show that although Molly may be right, someone is guilty. And she may have to relive her own childhood to find out who.~

Another great sounding book to add to my wish list at Amazon. I guess I should just keep the Amazon page open at all times!

This sounds like a fascinating book, although it might be a bit dark for my taste...
