True Blue by Deborah Ellis

True Blue by Deborah Ellis 
Pajama Press, January 2011

Summary from Goodreads:
The darker side of a friendship is portrayed by Jess, a 17 year old who struggles to find the moral courage to remain loyal to her best friend who has been accused of murdering an eight year old girl at summer camp. The town becomes a media circus and the pressures become too great for Jess to cope.
I found this book literally by accident. I was processing new books, and there it was. I have heard NOTHING about this book, but the inside flap had me intrigued. Our main character, Jess, is trying to come to terms with the fact that her best friend and co-camp counselor, Casey, has been arrested for the murder of one of their camp charges. This was a quick, enjoyable read. Jess is not a truly reliable narrator, and you'll spend the book questioning her version of the truth. This questioning, of course, will have you questioning Casey's innocence. And to top it all off, the murdered 8-year-old child was a despicable child--according to Jess, anyway. Seriously, this was a quick, fun mystery--I read it in just a couple of hours and am so glad it made it's way to mr library!

Enjoy your reading!
