Looking for JJ

When she was ten, Alice did something so wicked that the whole world would hate her if they knew. Now she’s sixteen, free at last, with a new identity and a new life. But branded as a killer, forced to live a lie, how long can she keep the past at bay? The rare, brave and topical story of a young person scarred by their involvement in a terrible crime.

Winner of the Booktrust Teenage Prize.

    This book is amazing and mind blowing I can’t wait to read ‘Finding Jennifer Jones’ to find out what happens to ‘Katie Rickshaw’. A must read!
