Lessons From A Dead Girl
Candlewick Press




From the Publisher: 
“An unflinching story of a troubled friendship -- and one girl’s struggle to come to terms with secrets and shame and find her own power to heal.”


Reviews:

“A razor-sharp examination of friendship, abuse and secrets.” —Kirkus

“[Readers will] be riveted by this haunting story of a girl’s journey to understanding, which culminates in a final lesson from her old friend: ‘The truth belongs to you.” —Booklist

“The concise, clear style of this short novel belies the sophistication of it’s subject matter. Knowles sheds valuable light on the long-term emotional impact of child abuse and the roots of sexual abuse among peers.” 
—School Library Journal
