Book Blogger Hop!

I just came across this super cool blog called Crazy-for-books.com and found this cool blog hop! Most of the sites are for book reviews, and while the CHICKS aren't your normal book reviewers, we do give opinions and spotlight tons and tons of books and authors so I thought it would be fun to participate!

Josie Cormier, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, could be the state's best witness, but she can't remember what happened in front of her own eyes. And as the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show, destroying the closest of friendships and families.

RECOMMENDED READS!
