On the first page, Catherine Rozier admits that she has killed Nic, a "friend" at one time. Brilliant, yet socially awkward, "Cathy" tells her story from Guernsey Island, 1985, while studying her dad's 1965 records of the severe impact of the WWII German Occupation. The quest for truth obsesses both Cathy and her dad each reaching conclusions highly unpopular with others. High-spirited and crazy, Cathy's voice relays enduring extreme bullying, longs for acceptance and wants to confess her crime. One person's truth is another's lie, as this intriguing and quickly paced tale focuses upon a historically forgotten people and a devastated, lonely girl!
