Interest level: 7th +
Reading level: medium
Genre: murder, mystery, trial by fire

Author Robert Cormier has written some really good books ("The Chocolate War", "I am the Cheese", "After the First Death"), but this is one of my favorites. Once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down, so don't start reading it late on a school night! It's also a bit disturbing and you may not be able to fall asleep right after you finish reading it, so be warned.

This book is about Jason, a 12-year old boy, who was the last person who saw Alicia alive on the first day of summer vacation. Jason is called to the police station and is questioned relentlessly by a professional interrogator. Jason thinks he's at the station to help the police find the murderer, but the interrogator is, in fact, there to get a confession out of Jason. Is Jason innocent or guilty? You're going to have to read it to find out!
