Book Rave Contender 2012: Shine

Lauren Myracle’s new mystery thriller may have been unintentionally dissed by the National Book Awards, but it’s been nominated for our Book Rave! The word on the street is certainly positive! How’d you like it? Let us know in the comments section!

The Blurb:

When her best guy friend falls victim to a vicious hate crime, sixteen-year-old Cat sets out to discover who in her small town did it. Richly atmospheric, this daring mystery mines the secrets of a tightly knit Southern community and examines the strength of will it takes to go against everyone you know in the name of justice.
