Short-listed for the Forest of Reading Red Maple Award, 2012


Before you judge me, there are two things you should know about why I did it.


Shana Tremain is a good kid. She knows right from wrong and she's never been in any serious trouble. But when her best friend, Carrie, comes to her for help, Shana agrees to break the law to save Carrie from a molester. She even feels good about it for a while.


Then trouble starts. Someone in their group of friends is stealing from the others. As she searches for the truth, Shana uncovers evidence that raises a terrifying question: Has she made a horrible mistake?


Faced with the reality of what she's done, Shana finds herself trapped in a web of her own lies and deceit. Can she convince the right people that she's telling the truth now? Either way its clear someone is going to pay a terrible price for her crime.
